Xhosa, a tribe from the South African region, is one of the most populous ethnic groups in that area. ‘Xhosa Girl’ is a painting that illustrates the traditional Xhosa women, in their typical attire and form. Biplab Biswas finds his muse in human figures and is known for portraying the customary traditions and giving his paintings a spiritual touch. Female figures, who the artist believes are beautiful, givers of life, nurturer of human life, from an integral part of his paintings. The single eye painted in the tribal girl’s portrait, depict the need for concentration and focus on the pure values of life. His deft brushwork gives his paintings and the subjects a definitive character. The combination of sombre colours such as ochers, greens, yellows, and blues along with hints of bright colours like red and orange create a beautiful balance in the painting much like the birds and trees that bring a peaceful balance in Biswas’ paintings and harmony in life.
