Gouranga Beshai was born in 1968. A self-taught artist, he draws inspiration from Hemen Mazumdar and has fashioned a set of images of semi-nude women. Gouranga has achieved a solid and steady reputation as an artist. Marked by meticulous execution and yet, an unstudied formal naiveté, this Kolkata based artist’s canvases are irresistibly visuals; both for their charming figurative content and fascinating scheme of colours. His main attempt seems to be to bring back realism as a source of enjoying paintings that intellectually stimulate you. Okapi World Art Gallery has select large format canvases from this talented artist.
