Sajal Sarkar

Sajal Sarkar

Born and raised in Kolkata, Sajal Sarkar employs the classical realistic style; and then manipulates images to suit his own vision. Graduating in painting from the Government College of Art and Crafts, Kolkata in 1989, Sarkar spent four years at the Lalit Kala Akademi Studio before moving to Baroda in 1993 to pursue a further diploma in graphics and printmaking. Sarkar prefers to work with oils, but also works with charcoal, often adapting the etching look on a surface with the use of charcoal.
