Samindranath Majumdar

ARTIST PROFILE
Samindranath Majumdar’s paintings look back to his own experiences, using abstraction and multiple layers of paint to redefine space and memory. His works tread the fine line between completely abstract and representative forms, calling into question the role that narrative threads play in experiencing art.

 

Currently, a lecturer at the Indian College of Art and Draughtsmanship, Kolkata, Samindranath Majumdar was born in 1966. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Visual Arts from Rabindra Bharti University, Kolkata, after completing a first undergraduate degree in science at Kolkata University.

 

The artist has taken part in several solo exhibitions since his first in 1993 at the Birla Academy of Art and Culture, Kolkata. His most recent solo shows include those held at Gallerie Ganesha, New Delhi, in 2005; Gandhara Art Gallery, Kolkata, in 2005; and Triveni Art Gallery, New Delhi, in 2001. Among the recent group shows in which his works have been featured are those held at Gallery Gandhara, Kolkata, in 2004; Eastern Regional Art Exhibition of the Rashtriya Lalit Kala Akademi at the Manipur State Museum, in 2003; and the Eastern Regional Art Exhibition of the Rashtriya Lalit Kala Akademi at CIMA Art Gallery, Kolkata, in 2002. In 2001, Majumdar received the Ebrahim Alkazi Endowment Award, and in 2000, he was honored with the All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society (AIFACS) Annual Award.
