Kishore Pratim Biswas

Kishore Pratim Biswas was born in 1971 in Kolkata – The city of joy. His work has been showcased at several solo and group exhibitions in India and aboard. The artist skilfully combines several versatile techniques. He experiments with different painting styles to continuously improve his skills.

“Indian Steam Locomotives had an unusual character which reflects in my paintings. The colours of the engine were mostly black and grey, while the body looked too muddy, dusty and unclean which gave its surface a unique look and which lend the locomotives the distinct character. I have never found anything as interesting as these locomotives in the world. I liked the ineffable ambient of white steam and black engine which is a dramatic visual experience for me. I feel crazy when I see these locomotives and love to do its live painting on watercolour, oil, pen and ink sketch,” says Kishore.
