Born in 1953, Dhiren Sasmal has been working steadily since then as artist, designer and illustrator, his immense talent and mastery over his medium leading him to win awards in every sphere of artistic activity, be it applied or fine art. His paintings can be found in collections in India, Australia, U.S.A., U.K., Belgium, France and Germany
Dhiren Sasmal is a meditative painter, amazing skilful in his linear execution. What seduces the viewer is the way he transforms his dexterous formal structure into an innocent and ethereal world of fantasy-oriented beauty. He is a master in the use of colour and form, often disintegrating forms, makes them geometrical and then breaking them. Yet this scattering within the pictorial space remains integrated in a totality of formal structure. This is the mastery of the artist.
