Born on 2nd January 1953, Dhiren Sasmal has been working steadily since then as artist, designer and illustrator, his immense talent and mastery over his medium leading him to win awards in every sphere of artistic activity, be it applied or fine art. His paintings can be found in galleries and collections in India, Australia, U.S.A., U.K., Belgium, France and Germany.
Dhiren Sasmal is a meditative painter. His works are diverse, his colours and style reflecting the structure of the source, be it Bengal folk-art or European expressionism. He often disintegrates forms, makes them geometrical and then breaks the form, yet there remains an integration in the formal structure. This is the mastery of the artist.
“Bird - 1” is a very recent work, done in a new and fast style, bringing together all the expertise and experience of this veteran artist. He has worked in mixed media on board in this series of semi-abstract birds and animals.
