  • About the Artist

He was born in 1962 West Bengal, India, Birbhum, India, Rampurhat (painted). Kalam Patua is an Indian artist who has reinvigorated and, in doing so, reinvented Kalighat painting in India today. His work can be deceptive, seemingly playful and charming. However, Patua is a profound observer and his paintings are anything but decorative.

Like the great paintings of the Kalighat tradition, Patua’s efforts are edgy, tantalizing, and subversive. He is provocative, insightful, and his response to the Kalighat tradition is astute. Patua’s works have been exhibited in India and abroad in London as well as private collections in India and around the world. Kalam lives in Rampurhat in West Bengal and works from his studio at home.
