Subrata Das was born in 1967, Kolkata. He completed his art education from College of visual arts under the guidance of eminent artists Shuvaprasanna. Subrata Das’s art works are imbued with colour, mysticism and romance. The acrylics on canvas and mixed media works feature a cast of ethereal mythological beings from the Hindu epics with long limbs, cascading hair and a flame orange mist of vermilion dotting their foreheads. The Buddha and Krishna are recurring protagonists in the Kolkata-born artist’s works, who focuses on the sublime and the poetic aspects of ancient Indian myths and legends. A favourite theme is the divine love story of Radha and Krishna, depicted as two young, besotted lovers.

The beauty of Das’s art lies in the serene, graceful aura that radiates from his aqua and blue-green heroes and heroines, and the lush forest of natural imagery they are set in. The paintings are dotted with blue lotuses, doves, peacocks, birds and the omnipresent flute. The ethnic subjects and themes are rendered with modern aesthetics, and tradition mixes freely with contemporary techniques in Das’s work.
