Collection: Kalidas Karmakar

Drawing and painting came naturally to Kalidas Karmakar, given that the larger family’s occupation was that of goldsmiths and artisans. A graduate of the Kolkata Government Art College, Karmakar began his career in the seventies in Dhaka with paintings and prints in which he explored mythic and Tantric images, thereby opening up new possibilities for etching and aquatint. He researched printmaking and graphic art in Poland, Japan, and France. Karmakar’s performances on the Chars of the River Padma in the late eighties signalled the advent of site-specific art in Bangladesh. His works have been shown around the world. Karmakar received the Ekushey Padak in 2018, among other honors and awards.
