Born in 1956 in Paris, Chittrovani Mazumdar is known as one of India’s leading expressionist artists. His powerful body of work draws from a wide range of visual, musical or lyrical resources, references and influences. Composed of bold brushstrokes, layered figurative imagery, elements of collage and abstract spaces, his raw, near-expressionistic paintings evoke powerful emotions.

Mazumdar graduated from the Government College Kolkata in 1981. Composed of bold brushstrokes, elements of collage, abstract spaces and layered figurative imagery, Mazumdar’s raw, almost expressionistic, canvases create a powerful emotional response.
