About The Artist
Born in West Bengal, Agra based artist Sabya Sachi Ghosh is a teacher by profession. Self taught he is one of the newer artists to enrich the repertoire of what Indian artists have to offer the world today. Drawn to mixing and experimenting with a range of mediums he has created canvases in acrylic, oils and mixed media. He is an avid reader and a motorcyclist. He loves visiting villages in different regions of Bengal and also travelling to various places in India and abroad. As a self taught artist he was inspired to mix colours by looking at the works of great masters like Dali, Vermer, Miro, and the renaissance artists of Europe. He says that these great masters were the catalyst that fired his imagination. As a conscious being he is aware that his creative instincts are also the result of him belonging to a civilisation that is nearly five thousand years old.
He has been part of several Group shows with Exhibitions in Bordeaux, France, the gallery Artist’s Circle, Kolkata etc. Sabya Sachi Ghosh conducted his first solo exhibition of paintings and photography (on vinyl) in the Gallery Artivisual, Jodhpur Park, Kolkata (2008).
He has attended an art workshop held at Petra, Jordan and participated in paper reading on the topic ‘Relevance of Art in promoting cultural understanding among nations’ at an art workshop in Amman, Jordan. Sabya Sachi Ghosh has also published a paper titled ‘Of Fish and Beef, the New Recipe of the Muslim Identity: A Journey through the Cultural Prism of Bengal’ in the book ‘Muslim and Media Images: News versus Views’ - Oxford University Press, 2008.
