About Sumantra Mukherjee

Sumantra Mukherjee is a trained painter and his primary area of practice concentrates on portrait/figurative imagery of the contemporary cultural influx in today’s worlds; colorful and whimsical. He works and lives in Kolkatta. In Kolkata, post-colonial is not a theory, but a fact of daily life. As a draughtsman, he responds to such situations through Wall & Street painting, sculpture, and design.
