Artist

Jayashree Chakravorty

Description : Jayashree Chakravarty was born in Tripura in 1956 and studied art in a wide-range of art education institutions ranging from Kala Bhavan, Viswa Bharati University, Santiniketan, Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University, Baroda and Ecole d' Art, Aix-en-Provence, France. The early figurative works in bright expressionist colours changed dramatically after her stay in France between 1990 and 1995. Her most recent works are referred to as mental journeys with oil and acrylic on canvas. The large busy surfaces that have emerged out of her earlier paper works enact memory and become meeting grounds for diverse visual elements like the map and the nervous line of the ECG. The figurative and the abstract combine with fluid ease. Chakravarty is probably the only Indian artist to show at the prestigious Drawing Centre in New York. She has also held solo shows at Ecole d’Art, Aix-en-Province, Paris and Bose Pacia in New York to name a few. She has been part of prestigious group shows like Moving Ideas: A Contemporary Dialogue with India at the Hoopoe Curatorial in Vancouver and Fire and Life in Canberra. Ghakravarty lives and works in Kolkata
