BIOGRAPHY

Chittrovanu Mazumdar (born 13 October 1956) is a Kolkata-based artist who has been active in the contemporary Indian art scene for about three decades. A series of large-scale solo exhibitions in Kolkata, Delhi and Mumbai from the mid 80s to the end 90s established his reputation for innovation. His multicultural upbringing in a family of artists and writers in Kolkata and Paris, and his own restlessly seeking temperament have led to his developing an international vocabulary and grammar of art which draws on a spectrum of aesthetic, literary, and socio-cultural sources and influences.

Starting as a painter, Mazumdar has since explored a broad spectrum of media and technology in his work. His art incorporates inputs from his culturally varied upbringing in Kolkata and Paris and a range of eclectic reading in three languages - French, English and Bengali. His work is characterized by major shifts in style and form – from painting to multimedia environments and sound sculpture. His paintings are to be found in the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi and several private collections in India and abroad.
