The roots of our contemporary artistic expression are deep. That is why Jamini Roy can draw inspiration both from our tribal scroll art of Bengal and French cylindrical drawing and create his own world of a global humanist vision. This one finds reverberating in the works of M F Hussian, S H Raza and F N Souza, but each with his different original expression based on each artist’s unique experience set in the framework of India’s own take on universality.
Another important element that gives our contemporary art its place in the world is the high level of excellence in execution. Whether it is the flow of the line, the variety of colour and the use of texture to give a work its tactile reality, there are a large number of artists from different parts of the country and of different generations, ranging from G R Santosh from Kashmir , Krishen Khanna from Delhi, Ram Kumar from Himachal, Akbar Padamsee and Atul Dodiya from Mumbai, Sanjay Bhattacharya and Paresh Maity from Bengal, Arpana Caur from Punjab, who reflect a reflect a remarkable capacity to express themselves with originality.
