Born In 1969, PIntu Paul is a self-made artist without any institutional training. He has achieved his skill and sensitivity in art from his family heritage.His father Phani Bhushan Paul was an ornament designer. His grandfather was a creative potter, used to sculpt images of gods and goddesses. Out of this heritage Pintu achieved an in born insight into intrinsic rhythm of aesthetic creativity. After proceeding to a considerable extent he went to the renowned artist of neo-Indian style, Samar N Bhowmik who guided him and encouraged his passion for creativity. Paul made his first solo exhibition in 2003 and since then he had not to look back. With a creative zeal he has proceeded forward to reach the present state of his skilful and meditative creations.
In his present forms Pintu Paul amalgamates various nuances of lyrical linearity of indigenous folk tradition, the meditative inwardness of Indian classical sensibility, the fantasy-oriented technique of transformation of human figures from naturalism towards an expressionist sobriety based on Western modernistic formal orientation. Through synthesis of all these elements, local and global Paul posits a benign, lyrical, witty, pleasant and colourful exposition of life, where indigenous traditional identity plays a dominant role.
