DHOOMIMAL ART CENTRE CELEBRATING SIX DECADES OF ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE: CALCUTTA PAINTERS GROUP SHOW that marks a milestone in Indian Art history at New Delhi from 4 March 2024 till 16March 2024.

Dhoomimal Art Centre presents an exhibition of illustrious ‘Calcutta Painters,’ a distinguished collective of artists originating from Kolkata showcasing their six decades long artistic journey during which the group has played a pivotal role in shaping the modern art landscape of India.

“Emerging from the vibrant art scene of New Delhi, this esteemed collective has been a cornerstone in shaping the avant-garde art narrative in India. The artistic ethos and approach, initially championed by luminaries like Bijon Chowdhury, Rabin Mandal, Prakash Karmakar, Nikhil Biswas, continue to resonate even after six decades. Subrata Ghosh’s series of exhibits centres around different manifestations of the seas, providing a glimpse into his unique perspective on life. It’s as if everything in our lives is adorned with a touch of romance. We often hold onto history, mythology, and societal beliefs. However, when the tide of time washes everything away, we speak of harsh realities. We oscillate between romanticism and reality, trying to find a balance.

 In celebration of this remarkable journey, Dhoomimal Art Centre is thrilled to present an exhibition featuring the works of the group’s current members, paying homage to the enduring legacy established by its founding visionaries.

In essence, ‘Calcutta Painters’ has forged a legacy of unwavering dedication and artistic excellence, leaving an indelible mark on the canvas of India’s cultural heritage,” says the organisers of the Exhibition.

Established in 1964, the ‘Calcutta Painters’ stand as a testament to visionary artists committed to pushing the boundaries of artistic expression, and their  dedication to nurturing the growth of art and artists domestically,  making significant contributions to the global art community, remains unwavering. 

Currently, Shri. Jogen Chowdhury serves as the president, with Shri. Niren Sen Gupta holding the position of vice president.

Renowned artist Jogen Chowdhury who is widely acknowledged to be the master of the unbroken lines who has been inspired by the linear Kalighat pat tradition, exhibits his lines here in the Show.

“It brings me great joy to showcase the Calcutta Painters group, a dedicated force that has been instrumental in shaping the modern art scene since 1964. I am thrilled to underscore the invaluable contribution such artistic collectives make, not only in nurturing the development of art and artists within our borders but also in making substantial contributions to the global art community. As the ‘Calcutta Painters’ marks its sixty-year milestone, it stands as a formidable presence in our nation’s cultural landscape, embodying a rich legacy in the realm of art,” says Mohit Jain, Director of Dhoomimal Art Centre, New Delhi.
