Dilip Mitra
Graduated from Govt. College of Art & Craft, Kolkata1987. He later did his M.F.A from Kala Bhavana, Visva Bharati, Santiniketan 1990.
Dilip’s works are loaded with fables and stories made up from everyday events of his own life interspersed with mythical creatures which are an extension of his experiences. He says he builds his canvases in layers and each layer hides within its fold myriad stories. “Metaphorically speaking these layers are the narrative deposits and accumulation of time”. He believes in ‘stitching’ his motifs to the surface of the painting through these layers. Santiniketan and Tagore are abiding source of influence for his works.
