Portfolio Sumantra Mukherjee

Paintings and wall installations

I paint on canvas, paper, engraved boards and also public walls and often use digital
media and archives to refer back to documented occurrences.
The images of this application are mostly portraits and figurative paintings. My city
shows me an influx of trends and people trying to live up to the fashion of living up to it –
including myself. I see the hybrid generation simultaneously putting their faith in
different ideologies yet unable to completely cut loose of their own roots. My works
follow a similar process of creating portraits from a mixture of images. The references of
advertisements, hybrid music, sea of population, Indian iconography, popular stickers to
the loud psyche of my generation – help me develop a chaos in the image. Through my
paintings I try to translate my surrounding in the best possible ways that I can.
I live and work in Kolkata,India
