Pratap Manna

As an artist, I have worked hard to develop work that speaks both of me and of others. At present, my creations are deeply inspired by the environment and the surroundings I inhabit. In our multitude of everyday experiences, images register in our mind in a multilayered form — and so, my paintings take on this many-levelled structure, too, coming to life with a limited colour palette and mediums of charcoal, ink and watercolours. Sometimes, my artwork also takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues.
