Born 1971 Sanatan Dinda is a first class graduate in painting from the Government College of Arts and Crafts in Kolkata. Equally deft at painting, drawing, sculptures, mural making and installations Sanatan’s work adorns an illusionary and spiritual tone. He tried to redefine contemporary art with folk forms with the the Kathputli Durga and Milky Way Pooja Pandals he created. Keen on experimentation his imagery includes ordinary men and women as well as Buddha and other icons that comes in layers with foliage, calligraphy and other markings in the background adding to their visual appeal. Though currently preoccupied with three dimensional sculptural paintings of figures that transcend the two dimensional limitations of a canvas, his earlier work appeared more in abstraction and landscape format.
