In love with the Steam Engine

He is in love with the Steam Engine. Having grown up in an area close to the locomotive workshop, Kishore Pratim Biswas, the 42 year old Kolkatta born artist was in awe of the fogging giants right from his childhood. The steam locomotives seemed enticing to this artist who would end up at the workshop every second day to just enjoy the awe-inspiring ambience of the workshop.

It was this dramatic visual experience which was driving Kishore not only crazy but also was encouraging enough bring it all down the memory on his canvases. The firemen and drivers at the workshop were good friends with him and they would always come over to take a look their pictures in his sketch book. Some portraits, some expressions, some moments and some memories, it all moved Kishore to come out with this collection in watercolour and oil mostly in sepia tone. Thus came ‘Nostalgia of steam locomotives,’ his latest collection.

‘Indian Steam Locomotives out Of Museum’ on display at Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, a solo show of Kishore Pratim Biswas from 26th Dec 2015 to 1st Jan 2016.

A graduate of Fine Arts from the Government College of Art & Craft, Kolkata in 1996, Kishore moved to Mumbai in 2009 after an initial struggle in the hometown. And the silver city did prove out to be lucky for him.

“For years, I woke up at midnight and started painting impromptu. I still find that very gratifying,” says the artist. Today, Kishore operates from his own studio in Mumbai. The 15-year journey in modern contemporary art movement has not only strengthened his unconventional thought process, but architected his painting style too.

The first few years primarily saw him painting in water colors, but gradually, he switched to painting Acrylic on canvas. Today, he stands on a solid intellectual platform and his work reflects a unique streak, where color is of great importance, and form happens to be only incidental. He uses the texture in the canvas as well as experimental methods to add the finishing touch to his meticulous paintings. Kishore is also an expert in acrylic, oil, watercolor, mix media, charcoal, and soft pastels.
