The Paintings of Ananta Mandal
Ananta Mandal is one of the indian contemporary young artist, Earlier his work have achieved national as well as international success. His painting is outstanding, with realistic approach; where life as it really is. He has been romantic artist and his many more images evoke feeling rather than thought. His water colours are bright and sensuous but their atmosphere evoke a strange my steriousness. His every watery stroke makes an image as in the case of portrait and landscape. His watery stroke comes from many things : the hustle and bustle of modern city life, lush forest, tropical beaches and the many moods of nature. To quote the artist “ Dark shadow of submerged footpath, misty city and beauty of nature sky have impressed me since my childhood which I have captured in different medium like water, oil and acrylic colour with all its glory in simple realistic visual language”.
