Relate - Paintings Exhibition by Rajat Bandopadhyay
An arts graduate from Kolkata's Govt College of Arts & Crafts (GCAC) and a creative professional in the advertising domain for the last two decades, Rajat considers his oeuvres a way to creatively express his dreams, illusions, emotions and feelings. With his first solo exhibition, 'RELATE'.
For Rajat 'relate' means the world around him. "Ever since I realized life around, I have struck a chord with anyone and anything around me and this has defined my canvas of life.. An art piece should provoke emotions in people and in order for people to respond emotionally they have to relate to art as their experience, as closely as possible to reality," he says.
The exhibition will showcase Rajat's renditions in watercolours titled Hope, Abandoned, Trinity and History to name a few.
Rajat's fascination for paintings struck since childhood. During his college he was chosen under the young artist category for a West Bengal Government project. He started his journey in 1994 at Chitra Kala Parishad, Bangalore where he participated in a group show of young artists. He was also a part of a group show in New Delhi at The Art Konsult gallery. Watercolour is his forte and he likes to capture nature, landscapes and environment on his canvas.
