ARTIST

 

Debraj Goswami
Was born in 1973 in Serampore, West Bengal. Goswami completed his bachelor’s degree in Graphics at the Rabindra Bharati University in West Bengal and his Master’s degree from M.S. University Baroda where he now teaches in the Printmaking Department.

Goswami prefers to work with acrylic on paper, because he believes the medium gives an artist the advantages of both oils and watercolors, allowing him to easily create and manipulate images on the surface. He skillfully manages to get a very serious message across to his viewers through his work, albeit in a sometimes-humorous manner. Amongst the issues and concerns that he has dealt with are those relating to the social habits that the ‘new’ generation has cultivated by imitating those prevalent in the west.
Debraj Goswami has participated in several shows. Amongst his solo endeavors are ‘Multiple Choice’ at Akar Prakar, Kolkata, in 2008; ‘Recycling Masterpieces and Etc.’ at Gallery Threshold, New Delhi, in 2006; ‘My Experiments with Half Truth’ at Gallery Chemould, Mumbai, in 2004; and ‘Don’t / Please Take it otherwise’ at Gallery Art Resource Trust, Mumbai, in 2001. He has also taken part in a number of group shows including, `Faces` at Tao Art Gallery, Mumbai; `Baroda: A Tale of Two Cities` at Sarjan Art Gallery, Baroda; `Of Myths And More` at Sans Tache, Mumbai; `Metropolis and the Self` at Art Alive, New Delhi; `Mapping Memories – 2, Painted Travelogues of Bali and Burma’ at Gallery Threshold, New Delhi; ‘Freedom: Sixty Years of Indian Independence’ at the Centre for International Modern Art (CIMA), Kolkata; ‘Ethos 4’ at Indigo Blue Art Gallery, Singapore; and ‘Gaze Within / Gaze Without’ at Gandhara Art Gallery, Kolkata.
