Biography

Born in 1974, Kolkata.

Avijit Dutta obtained his BFA in Painting from Rabindra Bharati University, Kolkata.

His curiosity and interest to know the past lives of people and their lifestyle has always been profound which is reflected in his paintings repeatedly. Museums are representation of collections of present or past cultural histories and practices. In his works, Avijit has tried to bring forward all the existing taboos and experiences of the long-lost lives of people which are somewhat intertwined with his life. One thing predominant in such collections are the politics surrounding a race. Even though this aspect is widely spoken about in the present times yet it is still a sensitive and tabooed issue to deal with.

Avijit Dutta has exhibited at various national, international galleries and art events from the year 1996. He received best work in watercolour from Academy of Fine Arts (Visual Arts). He was also awarded certificates of merit in 1996-1997(Rabindra Bharati University). In 2014, he received ‘Vice-Versa’ Residency Fellowship at the Shang Yuan Art Museum in Beijing, China, under the International Artist Exchange Program.

Avijit Dutta lives and works in Kolkata.
