Sanat Kar

Born in Kolkata in 1937.


‘Line takes us to rhythm—so linearity infuses a sort of subdued rhythmic 
structure in all my work. While textured mute colours throb with a silent vibrancy transcending the positives and merging into the negative spaces within the format taking the total to the domain of a poignant solitude—a kind of predicament which every human has to face’says the inventor of Wood Intaglio (1972-73), Engraving on Sun-mica (1975-76) and Card Board Intaglio (1975-76).
