was born in Assam in 1958. After completing his Diploma in Painting from Assam, he pursued his Master Diploma in Graphics from Kala Bhavana, Visva-Bharati University Santiniketan.  Once a student of revered printmaker Somnath Hore; Ajit himself has attained extreme dexterity and mastery over the printmaking medium. His prints have a velvet soft appearance that is evocative of the delicacy of watercolors or pastels. It is to his credit that he manages to do large format prints in multi color with such deceptive ease. His imaginative world consists of serene human figures, frail birds and shy tortoises who coexist peacefully shrouded in an ethereal light and shade. 

Ajit Seal has participated in many shows of National & International importance such as International Mini Print Exhibition, Biennial, Norway / Swasti the Contemporary Art Gallery Bangalore/ Summer Show, CIMA art gallery, Kolkata/ Sixth International Biennial of Print Bharat Bhavan, Bhopal/ International Show of Com-Art-Korea and many others.
