Mousumi Sircar

Growing up in Kolkata, art was an important part of my formative years. So, although my

formal education was in the field of physics and I worked in the corporate sector for a few

years, I was very interested in drawing and painting all along. Eventually, my passion for

painting took over, and I decided to pursue it full time.

Having evolved from my initial style of realistic oil paintings, I now enjoy doing figurative

work, mostly in acrylic. Shapes, forms and colours have always interested me. I am fascinated

with the marks left by brush strokes on a blank canvas. I experiment with colour and forms

through which I try to tell the story of the beauty of life, of people and their engagement with

the environment. A large number of my paintings are based on human forms - some realistic,

some abstract.

I have been fortunate to have had the eminent artist, Smt. Shobha Broota, as a mentor. Living

in different cities in India has also been a very enriching experience culturally for me. That,

along with my love for travelling, has influenced my work to a great extent.

So far, I have taken part in numerous shows, group and solo, which are mentioned below.
