Professor Basudeb Biswas
. India .
Biswas employs traditional techniques, there is no mould. There is no way of re-creating a piece.
Each piece is unique and cannot be replicated.
All details and textures and created by hand individually. This is a very tedious, time consuming and disciplined skill that the artist has nurtured over many years.
It is great credit to the artist to be able to create such weightlessness from a material that is so weighted and dense.
This juxtaposition is the signature style of celebrated Indian sculptor Basudeb Biswas.
Born in 1958 in Andaman
Basudeb Biswas completed his Bachelors and Masters in Fine Arts (Sculpture) from Shantiniketan, Kolkata in 1983, to eventually
become the Head of the Sculpture Department of Apeejay College of Fine Arts in Jalandhar, Punjab.
The son of a carpenter, Biswas inherited his father's talent in carving. A true master Basudeb Biswas is able to transform Brass, a strong and hard material, into a fluid and delicate works of art.
He captures the simultaneous strength and fragility of a woman.
