Artist : Somnath Singh(Contemporary)


About Artist View Artworks of Somnath Singh Back to Artist

Somnath Singh completed his Bachelors in Fine Arts from College of Arts, New Delhi in 2001 and his Masters in Fine Arts from College of Arts, New Delhi in 2004; His first solo exhibition was held at Dhoomimal Art Gallery in 2013.

Somnath Singh’s art captures the emptiness and hollowness of modern-day urban existence. He draws inspiration from his immediate surroundings – the vicious circle of noise, buildings, people, work, money, relationship. The predicament of a cosmopolitan urban existence finds nuanced expression in his works.

Working in semi abstract vein, the artist has produced some very engaging images of human situations as we encounter in day to day life. He works with partly obscured human figures indicating the facelessness of the contemporary world. While looking at his works, the viewer can feel the pathos and melancholy of the semi obscured human figures. The way the artist uses colours, by pairing deep colours against dull backgrounds, heightens the sense of melancholy one experiences while looking at the works. The works are cathartic for the viewers, as a city dweller caught in the circle of work, life, money, one can empathise with the predicament of the characters of the artist’s works.
