INDIAN, B. 1943
Tapan Ghosh is an artist from Kolkata. Born in 1943, He completed his graduation from the Govt. College of Art & Craft, Kolkata with a First Class. He has also studied printmaking at Atelier 17 in Paris under the guidance of S. W. Hayter and Krishna Reddy. Tapan Ghosh`s works capture the playfulness of formal elements, with line and colour chasing each other, disappearing and showing up unexpectedly to take the viewer by surprise. He doesnt only simply capture descriptions of the tangible world but enjoys the inventiveness of form making through playful deliberations, exploring the layering process, using instinctive control, often guided by the elements themselves.
The artist has held 24 solo exhibitions in India and abroad. He has been the recipient of several National and International awards and accolades. Tapan's works have also been a part of prestigious auctions and charitable organisations for art and its awareness.
