Elements of Retroism, Minimalism, and Surrealism brought to life digitally by Supratik Saha.

A 22 year old multidisciplinary artist from Kolkata, India, Supratik is currently pursuing his Bachelor of Design degree from Pune. Living in close proximity to the bank of river Ganga, he has spent countless dusks appreciating the sunsets over the river.
“Being brought up in a traditional Bengali joint-family and having attended an anglo-indian Catholic school, I have had the privilege of experiencing the rich cultural heritage of the city as well as strong multidisciplinary approach to life. I generally do a lot of introspection and try to look at a situation from a third person’s perspective which helps me to relate and develop my concepts. ‘Try to understand, before being understood.’ is one of my professor’s pearls of wisdom that I live by. I generally try to revolve my work around aspects which have a deeper meaning rather than what it seems at the surface level. The feelings that I generally circle around while creating my art are retroism, minimalism and surrealism.”
Supratik’s work is influenced by nature and how beautiful yet complex geometries and layouts it creates. When we look at nature, we do not know how it has originated but we still marvel at it and try to comprehend how it has come into being.
“Although I studied about Communication Design in college, I always had an eye towards how nature interplays with itself. This quarantine has helped me realise so many things and one of them was to fear nature. With these recent digital illustrations, I have tried to visualise how nature looks like from various scenarios that we generally do not have a chance to experience but can only imagine”
