Artist's Profile
Shyamal Mukherjee
Shyamal Mukherjee-Monart Gallerie - Indian Artists Gallery He was born in Calcutta in 1961, and spent all of his college years in Santiniketan, first completing his BFA in 1987, and then his MFA in 1989 from the Rabindra Bharati University.

In Mukherjee's work, we see the Bengal School strong figurative tradition being carried ahead and interpreted in a very contemporary idiom. It's not surprising that every figure in his body of works has a separate and interesting story to tell. Most of the people Mukherjee paints are performers of some type, putting on an act for everyone else - something all of us do everyday of our lives. Mukherjee's figures are dressed in the bright, almost gaudy orange, red and green costumes that street performers wear, but their eyes are gazing and drawn, their faces almost cartoon like and their fingers podgy, making the irony and pathos that surrounds them extremely evident.

Mukherjee's favourite medium is reverse oil or acrylic painting on transparent acrylic sheets, and he swears that although he may change his themes and subjects, inventing new ones for new shows, he will never give up painting in this medium
