Atish Mukherjee Profile
Kolkata, India
About Artist

Atish Mukherjee’s deep understanding of rural art manifests itself in his canvasses and his sculptures, both in his employment of medium, and in the way he uses flora and fauna as imagery. His fascination with folk-art led him to experiment with forms and concepts. He researches his medium before working with it, be it tempera on stretched cloth, metal or terracotta. This three-dimensional work too reflects his deep understanding of rural art, and his perception of all elements of nature. Atish’s artworks are one of a kind, as he is constantly reinventing himself.

Atish Mukherjee began his career as an animator for film and print media, but never gave up on his dream of being a full-time painter and sculptor. Throughout his animation career of fifteen years, he continued exhibiting his unique folk-art-based tempera paintings, using a medium and a style close to his heart. His talent began to get him numerous awards, and he now works full time from his studio. Atish's fascination with folk-art led him to experiment with forms and concepts. His works reflect his deep understanding of folk and rural art, be it Madhubani of Bihar, the ‘patachitras’ of Midnapore, or the Warli of Maharashtra. His style is based on his perception of certain elements of nature – he uses these elements to depict human feelings, instincts and relationships. Depending on the theme, he changes his style from realistic to abstract and semi-abstract, moving effortlessly from media like pen & ink on tea-washed paper, to acrylics on canvas, to tempera on stretched cloth. Atish is an artist who is constantly reinventing himself.
