Painter and printmaker, Professor Sanat Kar (b. 1935) was the head of the Department of Graphics, Kala Bhavan and ended his teaching career as the Principal, Kala Bhavan, Shantiniketan in 1995 when he retired.
Educated at the Government College of Art and Crafts (1955-59) he is also the founder member and Secretary of the Artists’ Circle, Calcutta, Society of Contemporary Artists (1960-74). Highly talented and skillful, Kar has contributed innovative techniques to graphic printing in India. These include the process of wood intaglio, cardboard intaglio, and engraving on sunmica and other synthetic surfaces.
Over the years Kar’s strange figurations, some with geometric and reductionist tendencies, became the leitmotif of the inner emptiness of modern man and won much critical acclaim. Sanat Kar is a master at revealing man’s utter helplessness and despair; the doubts and strife of humanity itself. His art reflects the profound inner torment of modern man drowning in the sea of unfulfilled dreams.
Mondays 3 pm – 7 pm, Tuesdays – Saturdays 2 pm – 7 pm, Sundays and Public Holidays closed.
