Born in 1953, Dhiren Sasmal has been working steadily for the past 40 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, 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, with a mastery over more than one style. 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.
Fishes remain one of his favourite themes, and he often lends them expressions and character with his illustrative yet supremely artistic renditions.
