Event Description

A Visual Vocabulary

“If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere.”
Vincent Van Gogh

Satyabrata Das’s paintings are reminiscent of and, is inspired by the play of colours, the confident strokes of the iconic post-impressionist artist, Vincent Van Gogh. The roll and play of clouds above the sweeping landscapes are a visual narrative of places the artist has visited and has soaked in. Many are lasting memories of places the artist has visited and attempted to re-create with photo-references of inspiring landscapes of paintings that are pulsating and evocative.

Man’s insignificance is apparent against the backdrop of rolling hills and cascading waterfalls in appreciation of Nature, to invite the viewer, to experience the magnitude of what the earth in all her grandeur, has to offer mankind. Spontaneous brush strokes using pigments in a dense and opaque manner, depict the imagery of the force of cascading waterfalls, the scale of Nature while minimizing human figures that facilitates interpretations for the viewer. Relying on Acrylic and Oil mediums on canvas, the artist creates a pictorial vocabulary.

A lyrical rendition lies within a warm palette of colours with the use of black pigment to highlight and create depth to the compositions. Satyabrata Das is a seasoned artist who plays with the dark and light totality of each composition, to create an impact.
