“For years, I have been waking up at midnight and painting impromptu. I still find that very gratifying.”

Kishore’s 15-year journey in modern contemporary art movement has not only strengthened his unconventional thought process, but architected his painting style too.

Born in Kolkata, 42 year-old Kishore was passionate about art since childhood. After graduating in Fine Arts from Government College of Art & Craft, Kolkata, 1996. Kishore spent some struggling years in his hometown and then moved to Mumbai in 2009.

Today Kishore has his own studio in Mumbai. Kishore started by primarily painting in watercolours. But his talent knew no bounds. Gradually, he switched to painting Acrylic on canvas. Today, he stands on a solid intellectual platform and his work reflects a unique streak, where colour 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, watercolour, mix media, charcoal, and soft pastels.

Kishore organized his solo exhibition in Kolkata in 1996. In 1997, he displayed his work of art at several group shows around the country. Even though Kishore has a long way to go, his paintings are slowly making their way into the homes of contemporary Indian art.

    Kishore Pratim – ‘Those locomotives are alive’

    This series is about the nostalgia of steam locomotives. So basically this is my nostalgia because I’ve spent a long time with them. My uncle was a driver of a locomotive. As there are no light locomotives in today’s era, hence it has become just one object. For today’s generation, it’s an antique piece because they might have seen such locomotives in museum or somewhere else. Those who are from older generation, they will fall in nostalgia and will recall the memories which they would have spent with their father and friends.
