GAUTAM SARKAR's canvasses combine the transparency of watercolours with the vibrancy of acrylics.
Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits struck him as sad and expressionless. He studied them as he would a book, and read about a life of pain and disappointment.
Gautam’s portraits place Frida Kahlo in a happier setting. With Indian flowers and birds around her, and a smile on her lips, Gautam's Frida is healed.
