His fascination of the people and colors of Rajasthan is reflected in a beautiful series of canvases. His warm, vibrant forms-though geometricised are replete with sensuousness.

    Paresh Maity : The battleground of waterways

    I was born and grew up near the water. I started my life doing art with water. We all know ‘Jal hee jeevan hai' or water is our lifeline. While I was growing up, I was surrounded by lakes, canals and ponds, rivers and very close to the sea. So I could see from the beginning the main object of how the boat and water will be the biggest crisis in future, that I’m trying to show through this installation. You can see there are small boats. I have assembled and made this life size boat and there are other elements to it as well. You can see those matkas or pots and it is the symbol of the water, the fishing nets, I grew up with all of these elements. You know these watercolours I must tell you, it is the most difficult medium. You cannot rectify. I am standing in front of the largest watercolour artwork in the world. So by the time I reach putting colour, the water might dry up the other side, so it’s so difficult, it’s like a battlefield.
