Bikash Poddar

Bikash’s technical brilliance and his love for nature, his village and the forests around it, is what makes his work so special. Detailed images that are clearly etched in his mind from his childhood, come to life when he holds a brush and paints!

Born in Kalitaganj, North Bengal, Bikash Poddar studied art from the Govt. College of Art & Craft, Kolkata and was awarded a Gold medal. He joined the commercial world after graduating, working at an advertising agency at Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Delhi. After 15 years, he gave up the advertising world to become an artist, a clear win for all of us art lovers!
