A Glimpse into Basuki Dasgupta's Art

Discover the unique transformation of an idea into a finished masterpiece.

Journey through Basuki's Cultural Explorations

Shakti symbolism, rich traditions of Bengali tribal lore, and folk traditions define the work of Basuki Dasgupta. With his poignant and sensitive works, he invites us to dive deep into what connects us as human beings. He cajoles us to see that we are more similar than we realize whether it is with the person on the other end of the belief spectrum or the other end of the world.

Basuki's Artistic Awakening

Born and raised amidst the terracotta temples of Bishnupur, West Bengal, Basuki was constantly enthralled by the tactile nature of the murals and paintings adorning their corridors. These ancient works of art became a source of solace, offering a tangible connection to both moments of joy and despair. Perhaps it was this early haptic engagement that instilled a profound appreciation for texture in his artistic expression.

From Terracotta Temples to Textured Canvas

The earthy feels, textures and patterns found in Terracotta temples are mirrored in his rough-hewn and highly textured murals-on-canvas.

Everyday Goddesses

The women, in Basuki Dasgupta's paintings, are inspired by goddesses in his own life as they live with incredible poise and grace. The women take prominence in most of his works with eyes half-closed and their countenance very still. He pays homage to the daily efforts of women from all walks of life.

Where Faith Meets Form

“I believe that there is a close relationship between man and nature – man and God. This is my basic principle that reflects in my art. In my canvases, you will find elements that connect nature, man and God in perfect balance. My art has become my expression of faith and triumph; an expression and representation of compassion, truth and magnanimity." - Basuki Dasgupta

A Stepping Stone

The spark that fanned into the flame it is today; Basuki revisits the mural he painted in Shantiniketan in the year 1994. Basuki's artistic journey began with a strong foundation in education. He graduated with a degree in Painting and pursued postgraduate studies in Mural Painting at the Visva-Bharati University, Santiniketan, completing them in 1994. This strong academic grounding proved to be a springboard for a highly successful artistic career. His profound artistic skills and vision have been showcased through numerous solo exhibitions across India. Notably, his work has been featured at prestigious galleries like Kynkyny Art Gallery in Bangalore (2007, 2005), Kaleidoscope Art Gallery in Baroda (2007), Karnataka Chitrakala Parisath in Bangalore (2004), and Fluid Space Art Gallery in Bangalore (2003).

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Acrylic Paintings:

Store paintings in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent color fading. Dust gently with a soft, dry cloth or brush to remove surface dirt. Avoid using harsh chemicals or solvents for cleaning, as they may damage the paint. Glass framing is not necessary but can provide added protection. Handle with care to avoid scratching or smudging the surface.

Watercolor Paintings:

Avoid direct exposure to sunlight to prevent fading. Frame under glass with UV protection to shield from dust and moisture. Keep away from humid or damp areas to prevent warping. Handle with clean hands or gloves to avoid smudges and stains. Use acid-free materials for mounting and framing to prevent yellowing over time.

Oil Paintings:

Keep away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures to prevent cracking or fading. Dust regularly with a soft, dry brush or microfiber cloth. Avoid hanging in areas with high humidity to prevent mold growth. Store paintings upright or flat in a stable environment to prevent damage from shifting.

Bronze Sculptures:

Dust regularly with a soft, dry cloth or brush to remove surface dirt. Avoid touching the sculpture with bare hands, as oils from the skin can cause discoloration. Keep away from areas with high humidity or moisture to prevent corrosion. Store in a stable environment to prevent accidental damage or tipping over.

Fiberglass Sculptures:

Clean gently with a soft, damp cloth or sponge to remove dirt and grime. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scrubbing vigorously, as they may scratch the surface. Protect from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight to prevent fading. Store in a dry, cool place when not on display to prevent warping or damage.

Serigraphs:

When handling serigraphs, ensure your hands are clean and dry to prevent transferring oils or dirt onto the paper. Store serigraphs flat in a cool, dry, and stable environment to prevent warping or damage. Avoid areas prone to high humidity, temperature fluctuations, or direct sunlight. Frame serigraphs using acid-free materials to prevent yellowing or deterioration over time. Use UV-protective glass or acrylic to shield the artwork from harmful sunlight and dust. Dust the surface of the serigraph gently with a soft, dry brush or microfiber cloth. Avoid using water or cleaning solutions directly on the paper to prevent smudging or damage to the print. Hang serigraphs away from direct sunlight and sources of heat to prevent fading. Choose a stable and secure location for display to minimize the risk of accidental damage.
