Born in Dhanbad, Mishra’s father worked in the coal mines. These mines were the surroundings that he grew up with. This explains his perennial attraction to the rural raw beauty of the working female labourers, who while working carried an aura of sensibility, confidence and innocence.

As a student, this attraction gave rise to his desire to shoot (photograph) real women, which he subsequently did, for various magazines over a period of time. His work as a photographer resulted in various encounters with many women. Number of relationships later, along with a fair amount of pain and lose at their hands, he continues to be intrigued by them. Mishra’s art is dominated by images of women.

Dark, black, rural females have kept appearing on his canvas from a very early age. He has often traveled to the tribal areas of Bastar and Santhal, simply to get glimpses of their raw beauty, for their mystery, power, sensuality and distress agitate him. He believes that they may not be as glamorous as the city models, but they carry a deeper, more profound power of seduction. Once agitated, the treatment and themes then come spontaneously from within him, evoking the sensuality of the female form with just a few brushstrokes.

    The painting was a gift for someone else who selected it himself and was very happy receiving it. The website is very user friendly and efficient. While placing the order due to technical problems at our end we had some errors and we spoke to the team on numerous occasions. They made sure that the order was processed correctly and received on time. This was a gift and we had time constraints and both the team and the artist worked hard to ensure we received the artwork by the appropriate date. I would like to cordially thank the team for their efforts and say it was a pleasure to order through Indian Art Collectors. I shall use the service again and have also recommended it to my friends and colleagues. - Radhi Patel
