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.
Dhiren Sasmal is a meditative painter, amazing skilful in his linear execution. His works are diverse, his colours and style reflecting the structure of the source. 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 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.
This large canvas, 24" x 48", is an artist's journey into whimsy and fancy. It shows a pair of beautiful angels, one vivid and one almost like a shadow of the first.
