ORIGINAL ART BY SUDIP ROY: PAINTINGS SOLD
Contemporary Indian artist Sudip Roy is an adept and understated colorist, working across mediums in his recognizably subtle palette. He not only varies his use of oil, pastel, wash, watercolor, charcoal and acrylic but also experiments with very different subjects.
In his most popular series, artist Sudip Roy’s muse is the protagonist from the 1964 film “Charulata” (in English, known as “The Lonely Wife”), directed by Satyajit Ray. The young and beautiful Charulata is bored and lonely, longing to break free from the monotony of her life. In the original paintings, Charulata is sensual and feminine, each brushstroke softly rendering the texture of her skin and hair.
Art by Sudip Roy also includes his well-known watercolors and semi-abstract paintings. His watercolor scenes choose from a wide range of subjects, from hand-pulled rickshaws in Kolkata to tribals from Rajasthan, while his semi-abstracts are bold and dynamic explosions of color. In the artist’s own words, “Painting is a medium I use to emote. A deeply meditative process, I use colors and forms as tools to communicate my feelings and expressions.”
Sudip Roy studied at the Government College of Art and Craft, Kolkata and graduated as the Gold Medalist in 1984. He has since successfully established himself as a top-tier artist in India, and he earned international recognition at the 2011 Florence Biennale in Italy.
