ABOUT ARTIST ANUPAM HALDER
I am a realist artist, greatly inspired by Western tradition of Realism. My schooling was purely based on academic techniques of western painting from one oldest art institute in India, established in mid 19th century by the British rulers now known as Government College of Art & Craft, Kolkata.
After art college education I had chosen a career of full time professional artist to carry out my ambition in the field of contemporary art. It is not a very easy task to accept a freelance career as an artist in India and no exception for me but still have the dream to achieve success in the world of art. I am dedicated in service of art and want to continue for the future.
My art is conventional and technique is traditional but not the repetition of past. I am a modern realist in the true sense. I see the phenomenal world around me, the changing relation between mankind and nature is guiding force in my creative style. I have a deep analytical mind and it carry the messages that is something beyond the objective reality. These are the symbolic expression of my thinking when I place them on the canvas. From very minute and useless things to the immense world never been out of my observation. I love them to be animated in the painting. American modern master like Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth very much influenced me to determine my style.
