ART BY JATIN DAS: SERIGRAPHS (PRINTS) AVAILABLE
Serigraphs are a type of high quality, limited edition screen print made on high quality paper in collaboration with the artist. A different ‘screen’ or stencil is created for each color, and then ink is pushed through the corresponding stencil onto the paper. This printing process is repeated multiple times, using a separate stencil for each color. A single serigraphic print can have as many as 25 colors or more. Each print is then numbered and signed by the artist. Usually, prints of fewer editions are higher in value.
Internationally recognized Indian artist Jatin Das has worked with painting, sculpture and murals throughout his fifty-year career. He describes his artwork as an expression of the human form “beyond time and space.” His style is poetic, bold and graceful, evocative of human energy and experience. This is best represented in his paintings of nude or “bare figure” forms that brought him early acclaim in the 1960s and 70s.
Art by Jatin Das focuses on the human body, and in his dynamic compositions, he uses energetic linework and bold brushstrokes to capture the flow of movement. The nuances and joy of romantic relationships in particular are a constant theme of inspiration for the artist.
Jatin Das attended the Sir J.J. School of Art in Mumbai from 1957 to 1962. Thereafter, he started participating in art exhibitions at the national and international level, including the 1971 Paris Biennale and 1978 Venice Biennale. In 1997, he founded the JD Centre of Art in Bhubaneswar to promote traditional craft and contemporary art in his home state of Odisha. He has also taught at many leading institutions in India such as the National School of Drama and Jamia Millia Islamia. Notably, in 2001, he completed the mural ‘The Journey of India: Mohenjodaro to Mahatma Gandhi’ at the Parliament House to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of India’s independence, and in 2012, he received the prestigious award Padma Bhushan from the Indian government, one of the highest civilian honors.
