An old artwork

A charcoal drawing…(5)

Now I have placed another charcoal drawing perhaps that I did in mid 90s; use of casual strokes and free-flowing lines I adopted from the art of marginal (“Patua(s)” – actually they are traditional painters and have a traditional schooling but too much extent they are off-centered in social status and truly not accepted as high-profile artist as like as urbanized and educated artist from the authorized art institution, although they have major supports by the state promotion including the art venture acted by the private entrepreneurship). I was then become very much influenced by them as suggested as an alternative art practice by the large numbers of urban artists at that time and hopefully that was running during a decade. Many buyers and collectors were well concerned to this modernist practice to collect huge number of artworks from the artists of India.
