Artist's Profile
Jayashree Chakravarti
Jayashree Chakravarti-Monart Gallerie - Indian Artists Gallery Jayashree Chakravarti was born in Tripura in 1956 and studied art in a wide-range of art education institutions ranging from Kala Bhavan, Viswa Bharati University, Santiniketan, Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University, Baroda and Ecole d’Art, Aix-en-Provence, France. The early figurative works in bright expressionist colours changed dramatically after her stay in France between 1990 and 1995.

Her most recent works are referred to as mental journeys with oil and acrylic on canvas. The large busy surfaces that have emerged out of her earlier paper works enact memory and become meeting grounds for diverse visual elements like the map and the nervous line of the ECG. The figurative and the abstract combine with fluid ease.

In the last few years Chakravarti has maximized the sculptural quality of large paper works, working on an unfolding sequence of scroll works, using sturdy Nepali rice paper as well as the more delicate Chinese tissue paper, surfaces on which she paints with acrylic and powder-based pigments.

Chakravarti is probably the only Indian artist to show at the prestigious Drawing Centre in New York. She has also held solo shows at Ecole d’Art, Aix-en-Province, Paris and Bose Pacia in New York to name a few. She has been part of prestigious group shows like Moving Ideas: A Contemporary Dialogue with India at the Hoopoe Curatorial in Vancouver and Fire and Life in Canberra.

Chakravarti lives and works in Kolkata.
