Featured Artist

Jeevan Rajopadhyay

Artist Jeevan Rajopadhyay, 61, worked with landscapes for a long time. So long that one fine day he decided he was tired of it. There came a time when he felt that the mountains and the trees in his paintings caused disturbances in his creative renderings. With the realization that people, after all, needed change, he started experimenting with other formats of creative expression. He soon found happiness in the fact that he could break free from the limitations of predetermined shapes and boundaries of landscape paintings. I had to transfer my style from one technique to another. I never knew if the work I did was correct or not. Eventually, I presented these works in an exhibition, and the public totally loved them. I felt like I was on the right track. My longing for something new led me to the path I am in now -- the correct path, as far as I am concerned.
