Sekhar Roy

Born in 1957, Sekhar Roy’s monochromatic technique is much admired and emulated. Graduating first class from the Government College of Art and Crafts, Kolkata, Sekhar’s canvases have a liquid fluidity, one he retains irrespective of the medium, be it acrylic, oil or water. Since the last five years though, Roy has worked mainly in acrylic. Roy’s work generally centers itself on the strains and tensions of urban life, evoking a certain eerie gloom with ghostly shades of green, yellow, brown and blue.
