PHASES OF THE FOREST: SHUVANKAR MAITRA
A forest blooms in speckled entities: youthfulness of light, the wisdom of its barks, fun with the breeze, fermented riddles, stories of allies.

The artworks created by Shuvankar Maitra are wondrous entities within the canvas. Each day as one wakes to the thoughts of the forest, one can imagine the trickling sunlight on its green leaves, meant to host the yellow rays. Each night as one sleeps, the simple thought of moonlit branches generates poetic verses, a quarry of life cycles, even foundations of horror. Maitra’s art revolves around the epitomes of creating these nourishing trees, hues of wonderlands, nature and pastoral paintings and art. But also, it resolves the wish to preach our natural lands in exquisiteness. Heterogenous hues of life dribble into his art pieces, blending beautifully the vibe of the countryside, flora, enormous supporters of our ecosystem.
