"Given the immediately obvious and pronounced beauty of the protagonist, it takes a certain restraint to not quote Keats but as the title suggests, besides being a joy forever and mining admiration of the onlookers, beauty breeds envy as well. The gopikas linger in the background, secondary to the poise of the woman who fills the frame, clutching delicately lovely flowers to her bosom. The gently swayed flowers echo the unawareness of the woman when it comes to her own splendor, lost in the sweet thoughts of her betrothal. The green shade sweeping the canvas echoes her youth. Who can be blamed for begrudging such covetous gorgeousness after all? "

Sukanta Das is a renowned artist from West Bengal. He obtained his Bachelors’ in Visual Arts from Rabindra Bharati University.

Sukanta Das’s work is largely themed around beauty, of both humans as well as nature. Through his work he tries to portray relationship and dependence of human beings and nature with one another. He portrays his women to be soft, shy and delicate and contrasts a woman’s beauty with that of nature. He pays special attention to facial contours and expressions, imbibing the emotions of serenity and harmony in the face of his protagonists. His work is simple in composition yet extremely engaging.

He uses subtle sober hues such as soft browns, ochres, light greens and greys. He often compliments his human forms with motifs of nature such as vines, flowers and foliage. He uses soft brush strokes in his work.

He has numerous group as well as solo shows to his credit. His work is a part of private collections all over the world. He currently resides in Kolkata and works from his studio there.
