Amar Singha


Amar Singha was born and brought up in a baronial family of the north Bengal. In his childhood, he got color pencils, crayons and drawing sheets to avoid his loneliness. Behind the royal flamboyance, he had a lot of curiosity which he tried to put down on the drawing sheet. That childish game is now converted into a meaningful craft of his life. He took admission in the Ramakrishna mission primary school in Calcutta and after a few years, he gets back again to their high school and then college. After obtaining the graduation, he got a chance to admit in art college of Calcutta. In the final year of art college, his father expired and within a few years, he leaves their ancestor’s palace forever. Presently, he is residing in his own house and continuing painting in the studio.


The painting he formed in an exceptional way that revealing himself and the world around him. In the language of color, his painting trumps up the joy of human life and make visual poetry on canvas. Uses of contrary color in painting produce the delights of living. Sometimes, his painting indicating something around the experience of his past spiritual life unconsciously. Having affection for human life, it’s an endless journey of him to the infinity. He loves to create texture with the stroke of brushes that make his painting different. From the structural perspective, his painting based on synthetic cubism.  Throughout the game of reconstruction of the form, he reached to that imaginative world whose bless helps to become eloquent his canvas. Rather than passing in the Indian two-dimensional trend, the tenderness of light and shadow brings his thoughts back to life. The use of the line shows the eternal idea of the Indian drawing which he makes his own. From the grammatical perspective, his painting dominates the Indian custom, and in the framework of the ritualized Indian grammar, he configured the western ideas. The flows of two different visions come into the key-point that help him to plan his composition which significantly makes his painting unique. The masterpieces of the ancestor Indian artists have inspired him to move forward. By his creation, he has tried to find out the survival supply of human beings that have the address of joy. In his painting, he finds the stuff of surviving as well as the meaning of living that will inspire others to take a few more time from God to have the flavor of human life.
