Born on 2nd January 1953, Dhiren Sasmal has been working steadily for the past forty years as artist, designer and illustrator, his immense talent and mastery over his medium leading him to win awards in every sphere of artistic activity. His paintings can be found in galleries and collections in India, Australia, U.S.A., U.K., Belgium, France and Germany.

Sasmal is a meditative painter, amazing skilful in his linear execution. What amazes and seduces the viewer is the way he transforms his dexterous formal structure into an innocent and ethereal world of fantasy-oriented beauty.
His works are diverse, his colours and style reflecting the structure of the source. When he works with folktales of Bengal, his paintings reflect the sobriety of Bengal art within his multilayered structural compositions. While working with European themes, his fantasy art takes on an expressionist or surrealist form. He often disintegrates forms, makes them geometrical and then breaks the form, yet this scattering within the pictorial space remains integrated in a totality of formal structure.

Dhiren Sasmal simply uses stories as a point of departure – the style, medium and execution are very much his own – he employs a unique method of layering, where the colours emerge from within and below each layer, with a final ‘wash’ and intricate pen&ink detailing, making each piece a collector’s item.
