ARTIST

 

Tarun Maity

born 1977 in Kakdip, a vital part of Sundarban reserved forest only 50 km away from the world's largest bay – Bay of Bengal. The major occupation of the people living in this area is agriculture and fishing. Tarun had a fairly joyous childhood and he enjoyed the rural environment to his heart's content. These experiences have teamed up to shape his life in the later part and provide the visions which he captures. The artist recalls his childhood dreams and tries to maintain the connection between my childhood and the current scenario. He feels that he has the ability to express his feelings through art and wants to make people understand the importance of past experiences
