Mritunjay Mukherjee

I am Mritunjay Mukherjee from Bolpur Santiniketan. I have done my B.Sc. in Yoga from Visva-bharati University and now I'm pursuing my from the same University. Beside my subject I'm an art practitioner since many years and I try to tell stories through my work. The story of my perspective, my experience, my circumstantial situation and things like these. Sometimes it's based on lie, because somewhere 'Story' is an event of lies in itself.

 I collect my work material from nature; like I extract colours from clay, minerals, and sometimes leaves or herbal ingredients. I always try to recycle things so I make handmade paper (paper pulp) from waste papers I have, sometimes from my mother's old 'sharee', as well as I use 'Wasli' as medium. I like to use metaphors in my narrative works.

 The pandemic bashed me hard and also taught me some important lessons of life. Most part of my work just reflect the situation that I have faced already or still facing.
