Santa Fe New Mexican


Artist Participant List

Booth 97 Bhaskar Chitrakar comes from an artisan community in West Bengal. His family has been practicing Kalighat painting since its inception. Taught by his father, he is one of the few artists still practicing the conventional style and techniques of the genre, though his subject matter veers away from classical themes to explore contemporary, quotidian scenes of domestic life — with a sense of humor.
