Tamarind Art in New York City is showing work by the contemporary Indian artist Ashok Bhowmik. The exhibition opened on the 10th of July and finishes on the 15th of August.
I know very little about contemporary Indian art and have never heard of Ashok Bhowmik but I just love the “Ancestor’s Face” painting below, so I thought I better share it.
Here’s a blurb from the art gallery.. “Ashok Bhowmik is the featured artist in our current exhibition, ‘Alchemy of Enigma.’ Ashok’s paintings manipulate and invoke a spiritual yet haunting imagery within the synapses of the mind. His juxtapositions have a distinct style, streamed with color and accents against stark, bleak backgrounds to add to the simplistic yet powerful nature of his images. Ashok graduated from the Government College of Art and Craft in Kolkata and has exhibited in many solo and group shows worldwide. He currently lives and works in Kolkata.” Find out more at the Tamarind Art gallery website here.
