Le Petit Bistrot by Sagnik Biswas
Watercolor 17" x 13"
 
We reached Bern the day Buskers Festival started. Like every year, the streets of its Old Town were magically transformed into fabulous venues of music, dance & drama. Festivities were everywhere. Saw this young quartet in the late afternoon, probably having a break over a drink ... or two.

Night crawling, Prague by Sagnik Biswas
Watercolor 22 x 15
 
In Prague, we stayed in a 14th-century pension house in the old town. On a particularly warm night, been unable to sleep, I came down to Husova to catch some cool night breeze in the solitude … I was absolutely amazed to see the streets thronging with people & all kinds of sounds … no breeze but so full of life!

I set to reading your blog. I too see my work as "product"...Have you heard of Catherine Orer? She is on face book. Her gig is to teach the business end of being an artist. Lots of support and on line labs to learn from...things like business plans,strategies to selling, pricing work and much more, ideas and support from fellow artist. The labs are live. A life time member ships is so worth it. She has the experience, insight, and graciousness, compassion for artist that is amazing. Others have jumped on board. The name of the group is the Entrepreneur Network. In my degree program there was nothing about the business end of being an artist. Best wishes! Pejj

GruzMarket,DVK by Sagnik Biswas
Watercolor 15" x 22"
 
The open-air Gruz market in Dubrovnik is famous for its fresh produce including the local fish - but for me, it's the best place to buy the delectable Arancini - candied orange peel!

Biography
 
“May it please the Lord, Light of All Things, To show me the way, So that I may paint Light worthily” … (Leonardo da Vinci)
 
 
He has always been painting … be it on the walls of his room in childhood, or the perspectives during his course of Architecture or even the concept sketches he makes for Product Design  … but none have been Art for Art’s sake. It was only after a visit to the Uffizi Gallery in 2012, that Sagnik was truly fascinated by the possibilities of Art & began a more sustained effort in Watercolor Painting.
 
If travel has been his inspiration, then the internet was the great enabler … he is almost entirely self-taught from the numerous gems scattered in the WWW – Joseph Zbukvic, Viktoria Pricshedko, Myoe Win Aung, Vijay Achrekar & Andy Evansen are only a few of those whose works he has been following closely.
 
John Singer Sargent, Vincent Van Gogh  & Johannes Vermeer remain his major inspirations.
 
His style can be best described as representational – sometimes bordering on impressionism & sometimes borrowing from realistic abstraction. Sagnik’s paintings are like visual travelogues telling stories of people, architecture & places he has been to & been inspired by, to paint. 
 
To him, a painting is as much a personal memoir as it is a visual communique to his audience. 
 
Currently, Sagnik lives in Mumbai with his wife & son.
