Artist Bhaskar Lahiri

Joined Craft Tatva: September 2021

The ancient civilizations worldwide, especially that of India, with their spectacular manifestations, create an enchantment in me. Besides that age-old Indian philosophy, history, religion, folk-culture, literature, and folk-art stir the very core of my mind. In every nook and corner of my home state ,West Bengal, folk climes have its presence felt. Hence my utmost sincerity is to house those dew and dust strewn jewels into my compositions.

Focus Areas: Gods, Animals, etc.
