Pradeep Patra

Pradip Patra born in Medinipore, West Bengal, India did his M.F.A (Sculpture) from Kala Bhavan, Visva-Bharati, Santiniketan. Pradip has also trained in Glass casting and traditional Dokra casting methods.
Pradip feels an intrinsic closeness to nature, but in earning his livelihood he finds himself divorced from such natural surroundings, family and friends. He wishes to attain his dreams through sculpture hence he takes them into a realm of imagination. He puts wings on vehicles or wheels on houses to metaphorically reach out to friends and walk down memory lane. He works in various mediums depending on the demands of a particular concept.
Pradip has received the Research scholarship, Lalit Kala Academy. New Delhi in 2008-09 as well as the SSVAD, young artist award, Santiniketan in 2103. He has participated in several group shows such as Art Exhibition of Working artist, SSVAD 2013, Tarang, Studio-21, Kolkata 2011 / Heard- Unheard, Art speaks India, Delhi 2011 / Fresh Departures, Gallery Kolkata, Kolkata 2010 / H.K Kejriwal Young Artists Awards, Group exhibition, Mahua Art Gallery, Bangalore 2009 / Art Against Terrorism - Gandhara Gallery, Kolkata among many others.
