Born in 1962 in Durgapur, Asit Sarkar graduated and trained in Kolkata from the Government College of Arts and Crafts in 1988. Asit has had many group and solo shows and been vastly appreciated for his aesthetic, soft, sensuous, treatment of women, Radhas & Krishnas. He is known for his versatility in various mediums and subjects. His handling of abstracts and semi-abstracts is dexterous.
Women have a special place in his works. They are sensitive beings with a soul who reach out to the viewer in terms of appeal and touch their heart’s strings. They spread a feeling of love and happiness and uplift even the darkest of moods.
The artist dares to dream differently. His artistic brushwork executes both the rhythm & lyric of sound and the emotions and colours of Rajasthani miniature paintings. Myth becomes reality, & individual the universe. This is the artist's concepts; a painting a delight for the eyes, food for thought & a door open to imagination.
