Basuki Dasgupta was born in Bishnupur, West Bengal, where he spent most of his early years and adolescence, observing and appreciating the beauty of 17th century terracotta temples. At the age of 19, rather than taking a career of doctor or engineer, like any other young middle-class boy of those days, Basuki decided to take an unconventional path. He followed his heart into the world of art, which led him to Shantinikentan Visva Bharti. There, under the tutelage and guidance of well known artist, Jogen Chowdhury, Basuki graduated in 1992.

Basuki analogises his muse, Goddess Durga with Indian women, who unlike the Goddess Herself, don’t have numerous hands and strength, but are impeccable at their jobs. They complete their tedious day to day tasks without a single complaint and with mere two arms. Basuki thinks, that in true sense, common Indian women, remind him of the fierce and powerful Goddess Durga. His paintings have a subtle abstract texture in the background. They are full of vivid tones of blue, green, yellow and grey, but the vibrant red lips or huge red bindi on the forehead are the actual focal point of his paintings.

Basuki has showcased his works in numerous national and international exhibitions. Other than paintings, he has also created large murals and loves woodwork.

Art Advisory

ART ADVISORY

We understand that choosing art is an art in itself, be it for your living space as home decor, your boardroom, for you collection, or for your investment portfolio.

It is always difficult to tell what kind of palette would go in with your walls and architecture, what would make that living room expansive, majestic or cosy as you prefer it.
