Lot essay

On offer is an original drawing by Paresh Maity in the catalogue of his 2003 exhibition Shapes in Symphony organised by Gallerie Ganesha at the Triveni Kala Sangam.

'Paresh Maity was born in 1965, Tamluk - a small town in West Bengal - of great antiquity with a remarkable heritage of terracotta art. While in school he made clay images of gods and goddesses and sold them to earn money for his education. He started painting watercolours of river scenes while still at school and then oil painting thereafter. He mastered the technique of oil painting at the Government College of Art, Kolkata. His single-minded determination to acquire formal training paid off when he came to Delhi to join the Delhi College of Art.

‘Paresh's adventurous, experimental personality has prodded him to explore in all mediums – drawings, watercolours, oils, mixed media, installation and sculptures, photography and filmmaking. Paresh's uniqueness lies in his rediscovering the charm, flavour and magic of India in his paintings. Rajasthan has been the human inspiration behind his work, Shantiniketan the spirituality of mind, body and soul, in Agra he visualized the beauty of Taj, in Ajanta-Ellora he recreated the amazing Buddhist frescoes, in his magical series on Kerala he captured the destination in its pristine colours to the serene ghats of Varanasi and the Himalayan heights of Himachal Pradesh. He has done series of works on almost all facets and destinations of India and then across the seas to London, Venice, China and Japan. He has painted them all.

His works are in the collection at British Museum in London, Rubin Museum, New York, Commonwealth Institute, London, the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi, the Birla Academy of Art and Culture in Kolkata'
