In memory of the artist Asit Roy

His drawings and sculptures transform his everyday objects and situations into social commentaries on the times in which we live.

When he came to help me make molds, his work impressed me. Pushed him to study art, but his parents could not afford it. I decided to sponsor his studies and also be his adoptive mother.

—Kiran Dixit

MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, March 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — At Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai from March 29 to April 4, 2022, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Mumbai 26 March 2022: Asit Roy, the child of destiny, has entered the workshop of ace sculptor Kiran Dixit and his life has changed forever. His roots in art are deep. Her grandfather, a weaver from Dumka, was invited by Vishwa Bharati University (VBU) to help with weaving at “Shilpa Sadan” Santiniketan. His father was an assistant in the sculpture department of Kala Bhavan. A tribute art exhibition of drawings and sculptures by late artist Mr. Asit Roy will be on display at Jehangir Art Gallery, MG Road, Kala Ghoda, Mumbai from 29 March to 4 April 2022, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. h. She will present her watercolour, pen and ink drawings on paper and her sculptures in mixed techniques, terracotta and metals.

“When Asit came to help me make moulds, his work impressed me. Pushed him to study art, but his parents could not afford it. I decided to sponsor his studies and also be his adoptive mother, because he had problems at home,” says Kiran Dixit. He then did his Diploma in Sculptures at Kala Bhavan VBU, Higher Diploma in Sculptures at Chitra Kala Parishad, Bangalore and BVA in Fine Arts at Birla Academy of fine arts, Kolkata. He had previously exhibited his work in a group exhibition at Nandan Kala Bhavan Kolkata in their annual exhibition, Mulk Raj Gallery, New Delhi and Academy of fine art, Kolkata. His 2 works are part of the private collection of renowned art collectors.

His drawings and sculptures transform his everyday objects and situations into art. The Chaiwala, Khowai, Balloonwala, cats, pets express how his mind’s eyes absorbed it all. His works often reveal his innate sense of composition. What is most adorable and amazing in every piece of art is the simplicity of compositional skill and proper presentation of desired visual effects. The oxygen bottle, the Santhal dancers, the Facebook series, the train station and many others are social commentaries on the times in which we live.

We hope with optimism that this presentation will receive a good response and appreciation from the current artistic fraternity. It will be a worthy tribute to the departed soul of Asit Roy.
