After a long time, saw something new at the Academy. Canvases pulsating with energy and light. Shadows in still, limpid pools. Moonlight reflected in all its pristine silver glory and the thing that really stands out –the tactile nature of the paintings. Extremely painstaking craft seen in each and every painting. This is very good and very nice. The influence of van Gogh is palpable but the language is clearly different and unique. I really liked works of Tamojit Bhattacharyaand would be strongly recommending my friends and all to look up this new and unique voice in the increasingly dull cacophony of figurative and other arts seen nowadays.
I have seen the recent works & exhibition of Tamojit Bhattacharya at ‘Promenade’ sponsored by Taj Bengal. The important part is he is experimenting well with his paintings and about to achieve his own style & a new behaviour in his creations.
I deeply wish his success in painting ahead and life.
” I don’t know much about the nuances of art but Tamojit’s painting fascinate may, i feel like looking back at them time and again. A special style of lines within the pictures gives it a touch of nature …..his colors damp yet so bright…the themes chosen sometimes very ordinary a window, cloth line …..yet they just tell a story.Wish him all the best…..”
Tamojit Bhattacharya – Fine Artist
I met Tamojit Bhattacharya at the Taj Hotel, in Calcutta. The lounge was adorned with exceptionally beautiful paintings that drew me instantly. Tamojit’s sensitivity, his spiritual grandeur, his extravagant sense of colors and his bold unconventional style of painting are captured in every canvas that defines his art. Tamojit is extremely talented and an equally ambitious personality. I like his passion and his drive to make his art his life.
Tamojit’s paintings adorn the walls of my house and bring warmth and spiritual delight in the homes of many others. I would recommend his art to the world.
The painting creates the illusion of holding the reins of the chariot.Hence the ‘CHARIOTEER ‘ here, not only is the controller of it,,but it’s destiny..perhaps there is a tender similarity between the Charioteer n the Almighty.The apparently moving eyes depict multiple thoughts, formation of dreams n unworldly influence.There is no denying the fact that it’s a brilliant rendition of the omnipresent.
Tamojit’s paintings arrest my attention in a unique way that the brush strokes and the texture that arises out of them are one of a kind, narrating fluid stories in a static canvas with an ease that is both effortless and complex at the same time. There is a set of a story,and a subset of many stories all woven with a finesse that is only possible when a master is at work. When You possess his painting ,you actually own some timeless stories that are as old and as classy as life itself.
Tamojit stresses on the pulse of vitality. He tries to emanate life out of every stroke. It gathers a new meaning in the way it can live the moment
“The ‘Wing Factory’ is a heart wrenching, symphony of colours, like a finely woven tapestry, it reflects the young artist who is wise beyond his age .when I first saw the painting my heart skipped a beat, Tamojit is surely an artist whose wings are being crafted in ‘The Wing Factory’ ! He is getting ready to fly!”
In the domain of Tamojit Bhattacharya’s painting, his language represents an immense shift in our sensibility; the intensities of the sensation are more acute since the visual field is organized on the basis of Bhattacharya’s intensity, romanticism and of the way the are painted provide a celebratory transcendence of the subject matter. How dues one wade across these somnolent sloughs, the sparse and effusive grounds where all our leads are buried?
Along with the modernist techniques he foregrounds other devices to celebrate the surface, illuminating, inexorably bringing to life, tending a surface he fears might dull.
He is not concerned with the problem between relations in the painted space rather the active and neutral element amidst opposite makers. His idea in this present series done in acrylic on paper board is to define an opposition and control the tension in his maintain through space, matrices, images and colour to bring out a crisis, established by a gesture and holding such elements on check. It was born from another struggle within the self while decided to abjure from the narrative exuding a grace and harmony. Any attempt to read sensitivity or sympathy into such likeness would be like aims to convince the viewer that his art and obsessions are the same and bludgeon others to an agreement enabling us to hurtle free of longer real and art practice the referential sphere of the real and the imaginary
