Born in 1972, Kingshuk earned his Bachelor degree in 1997, and Masters degree in 1999, from Kala Bhavan. Sarkar thereafter studied, researched and trained in Japanese style painting at Kyoto University of Art and Design, Japan. He also mastered techniques of Japanese Calligraphy and Sumi Painting. This art practice and philosophy has profoundly influenced Kingshuk’s visual expression which is deeply rooted in Asian sensibilities. His art has an overall Asian significance and connotation.
Kingshuk aspires to unify, within the constraints of a fragmented and fractured society, the indigenous with the global context. His spontaneous visual rendering bears direct reflection of this recurring concern.
