Chandra’s works are imbued with his environment, the changes, his emotion, his response. Discomfiting undercurrents belie the apparent calmness of his canvas. His medium is entirely visual, his language eloquently unspoken. Being a figurative painter, his subject is usually the human being. Through a facial expression or a position, he seeks to interact with them and enter their tissue, stripped of the persona. At times he gets uncomfortably close to his subject, creating a physical tension for the viewer. Many of his works engage with deception in everyday life. ‘We think we are making independent choices but even our most basic decisions are a consequence of our conditioning. It is a charade of freedom,’ says Chandra.

 

He lives and works in Kolkata.
