Born in 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, 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.
"Krishna" is an older work, done with the mastery and expertise of a veteran in the mixed media on board category. His religious and mythological works always carry a touch of the abstract and the surreal which make each work a collector's piece.
