Sisir Sahana shows that glass, not always transparent, can also be used to show emotions from within. Kalakriti Art Gallery hosts an exhibition of works on canvas and glass by artist Sisir Sahana.
Born in 1963 in Bankura, West Bengal, he studied art at Kala Bhavan, Shantiniketan, and holds a Bachelor's and Master's Fine Art Degree in painting. Sahana also holds an Advanced Diploma in stained glass painting from Central St Martin's College of Art & Design, London (1994).
Sisir Sahana is an artist well known for his glass sculptures or relief work in glass more than his other work like painting and graphic representation. He mastered this unique avenue of expression whilst on fellowship and study trips to Europe and America, when he tried his hand at stained glass and later shifted to haptic glass friezes.
The pictorial depictions of his work consist mainly of images and scenes from nature or perceptive, caring and responsive human faces - a theme that has been preserved in his paintings and etchings as well. He has many awards to his credit.
Kalakriti was started in the year 2002, with a idea to promote Art & Culture in the Twin Cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Please contact 6656-4466 for further details.
