Press Release

The work of Santanu Santan Kumar combines a deep knowledge of traditional painting, drawing, human anatomy and picture making, with the digital technologies of today’s world. Kumar’s oil and digital prints focus on both the natural and spiritual worlds, creating an intricate tapestry that challenges our perceptions of reality and what we know, and which pays tribute to the Hindu gods and goddesses which have been an important part of the artist's life from a young age, and which now enrich his art. Hinduism is clearly a profound influence on Kumar's work, with images acting as symbolic references to his religious and cultural ties. Often using representational forms and elements, Kumar’s work depicts a unique expression of human nature and its connections to the spiritual world.

 

Having trained as a traditional artist, Kumar has been affiliated with NGA in Washington DC, for many years. Santanu Santan Kumar currently resides in Kaushambi Gzb, India.
