Subrata Gangopadhyaya

Subrata Gangopadhyaya

One of India’s leading painters in the modern realistic tradition, Subrata Gangopadhyay’s brushwork ranges from smoothly realistic to patchy impastos of vibrant expressionist bristles. Born in 1959, he earned a first class diploma in painting from the Government College of Art and Crafts, Kolkata in 1980. With an artistic vision informed by a vivid array of swirling colors and a sense of rhythmic movement, Gangopadhyay’s canvases blend technique and feeling to evoke nostalgia and celebrate human survival while energetic, sensuous figures reflect their abandonment and exuberance.
