“An artist’s nature is that they always search for a medium different from their usual work,” says an introspective Debabrata Biswas. The artist was in Hyderabad along with his wife Archana Rajguru for the ‘Durga Kali the Feminine Mystique’ exhibition of paintings at Pegasus Art Gallery in Jubilee Hills.

Artist Debabrata Biswas speaks about the inspiration behind his love for deities and mystique elements and his memories of a festival-filled childhood

“An artist’s nature is that they always search for a medium different from their usual work,” says an introspective Debabrata Biswas. The artist was in Hyderabad along with his wife Archana Rajguru for the ‘Durga Kali the Feminine Mystique’ exhibition of paintings at Pegasus Art Gallery in Jubilee Hills.

“Durga or Kali as we all call her is our favourite Goddess. The timing of this exhibition couldn’t be more apt what with the Dasara festival coming up,” he says. “It’s always good to exhibit something based on festivals,” adds Biswas.

The artist has held several such exhibitions in the past; some have revolved around Lord Ganesha and Buddha and new-year. Having grown up in an environment in which the Goddess was revered, the artist has vivid recollections of the festival from his home town.

“My works are a reflection of what I have seen from childhood,” he shares. “We saw the festival very close in our town and at our relative place. Be it the traditional dance of ‘Dhakis’ to honour the Goddess or the women’s play ‘Sindur Khela’- the images are ready in my mind.

As kids, we grow up seeing Gods and idols worshipped at festivals. I tried to bring that out,” says Biswas. “I believe in making spiritual and meaningful art. It should be connected to culture and religion,” he adds.The exhibition is on from 4pm to 8pm until October 15.
