Born in 1972, Tapas Biswas did his post-graduation in sculpture from B.H.U. A master mental caster who largely works with bronze, Tapas works are distinctly different not only from others but from each other too! He has perfected the art of creating large sculptures that take space but are relatively light. He is known for his meshes and figurative nets.
Tapas is experimental and every work greatly differs from another – some can be horizontal works while many are upright, but they all spread out taking space with effective hollowness. He loves to play with shapes, forms and lines and often integrates human figures with natural forms such as leaves and flowers. His sculptures have the ability to capture your attention as you slowly get immersed in a mesh – yes, he catches you and draws you in!
Tapas has been recognized for his work and was the “Young Emerging Artist in Sculpture” in Harmony 2006. He has also won the Dhoomimal Award, and the Governor’s Award at the Govern College of Art and Craft in Kolkata. He has held a few solo shows including one at Kalakriti, Hyderabad and Gallery Ganda in Hyderabad. He has also taken part in several group shows across the country. His works are part of various public and private collections both in India and abroad.
The artist lives and works out of Kolkata.
