Trailblazer Award


THE MONOTONY OF LIFE by Trinath Majumder

An elusive abstraction open to interpretation. Subtle interweaving of seemingly monotonic colours from a restricted, but beautiful, palette strives to capture the monotony of life, which in the artist’s vision converts “men to scarecrows”. A good ‘popish’ illustration. Surely, the artist will have much more to offer in the future. -Jury


DREAMSPINNER Award


THOUGHTS by Sneha Dasgupta

Good illustration – a drawing in pen.
The artist attempts to “…visualize what one may be thinking about while walking alone, at once.” -Jury

 


UNTITLED by Ishika Chatterjee
Captures a great moment. The excellent colour contrast conveys serenity. -Jury

 


MASTERCRAFTER Award


VISION OF EXPERIENCE by Trinath Majumder
Remarkably skillful drawing. Application of colour is rather loud and do not match with the subject portrayed. -Jury

 


UNTITLED BY Uttam Roy
The artist captures village life in a simple water colour portrait of a rustic youth. -Jury

 


UNTITLED by Sayak Ghosal

Incredible skill. Good realistic painting. Portrait study of a commoner. -Jury
Medium: Oil on canvas    Size:   16″x 20″

 



RABINDRANATH TAGORE by Shyamantak Chattopadhyay

The portrait depicts the life experience and a sort of anxiousness. The texture and idea are well matched. The artist, with his sheer fascination about portraits, has come up with an iconic figure of Bengal in mixed media on paper. -Jury

 


UNTITLED by Radhika Sivsankar

Very good skill. Wonderful! The technique could not be any better to depict motion and chaos and at the same time individuals’ loneliness. -Jury

 


LIVING POETRY by Sasank IVS

Well done! Illustration type of drawing.With minimal forms,the artist conveys the most. The blank space plays equal role as colours and forms! The artist envisions “… journey towards the mysterious moon, breathing some words and flying with the wings of my art.” -Jury
Art medium: Digital art

 


NEVER ENDING LOVE STORIES by Sasank IVS

Gorgeous design. Slender tendrils frame the moon as lyrical typography tells a poignant story – a likable emotional fantasy. Seem to have a touch of Japanese influence. Colours are carefully selected to create love and calm feelings. The title is telling by itself rendering the poem unnecessary. -Jury

 


DESIRE by Afrin Iqbal

A great visual language. This serves a pastel reminder of a reality that is often ignored but palpable underneath the surface.Good looking realistic painting but too photographic. A digital painting made in Photoshop. -Jury

 


 DISEASE OF SOCIETY by Sanjit Kumar Paul

Depicts shower of disrespect and violence on a raped victim of our society. Modern representation of thought. Good idea and technique! Likeable mix of colour and texture. -Jury
Medium : Acrylic on paper

 


CITYSCAPE: LAKE TOWN by Arnab Nag

A view of a busy road at night from above. Beautiful skill. -Jury
Medium: Watercolour on paper.

 


SELF PORTRAIT by Arnab Nag

Great composition. Elevating the purpose of a self portrait into a surreal epiphany.Imagination and application is very good.
Medium: Oil colour on canvas.

 


NAYIKA’S SELFIE AND THE PHOTOBOMBERS by Soumyadeep Roy

New approach. There is a hard hitting message here beyond the beautiful illustration projected on a real world mirror. Incredible mixed media! A succinct representation of the embellished image we project to the social media world. We focus on our best manufactured selves where every self is the “nayika”. The black mirror in your pocket reaffirms your self-worth and your existence is calculated in “likes” and “hearts”. -Jury
Medium: Painting on an antique mirror.


BALTHAZAR’S SUICIDE by Soumyadeep Roy

Artist presents an event on love and loss. Imaginative, but a mix of two styles in one frame. -Jury

 


BUDDINGWEAVER Award


BIRDS & CITYSCAPES by Debaritra Kundu

Good attempts – particularly the lovely wash in the “Cityscape”. This composition escalates the contrast on a usual life moment to expose a more noir graphic look. -Jury

 

 

 


UNTITLED by Ishika Chatterjee

A silent narrative depicted in graceful nuanced posture. Good attempt. -Jury

 


UNTITLED by Jayeeta Chakraborty

Good attempts. Need more practice. -Jury

 

 

 

RABINDRANATH by Jayeeta Chakraborty

 


UNTITLED by Sinchan Biswas

Good attempts. -Jury

 

 


NATURE by Zeeshan Hussain

Good composition. The clouds in “Nature-1”and the misty background in “Nature-2” are indeed commendable. -Jury

 

 

STILL LIFE by Zeeshan Hussain

 


UNTITLED by Chiranjib Layek

A polar bear stranded in an icy landscape that slowly devolves into a colourful surreal void – a vision from many miles away that could have been only captured by the mind’s eye. -Jury

 


UNTITLED by Sayantan Dey

Good attempts. -Jury
