ABOUT ARTIST SOMNATH CHAKRABORTY
The vastness and grandeur of Indian art and sculpture and its rhythm has created ripples in my mind. My sculptures and paintings center round the physical and mental faculties of human being along with the certain peculiar traits in some particular times an undoubtedly my ideas and some additions add glory to my sculpture.
The forte of my sculpture is to make the sculpture monumental and rhythmical.
Moreover, my prime aim is to make my creation traditional as well as universal.
