New Bull – a tribute to Mighty Enchanter The work of Saumya Bandyopadhyay talks about the shortfall of appropriate business areasfor bulls, as it is a portion of the time more affordable to kill calves rather than back them, gave a climb in investigation and usage of sexed semen, which fundamentally diminishes the proportion of male calves brought into the world in the world. The male calves are being killed straight after birth across the world, has affected seeing the off-kilter loss of Bulls(Calves) on the planet. The absence of suitable business sectors for bull calves as it is some of the time less expensive to kill calves instead of back them gave an ascent in exploration and utilization of sexed semen, which significantly lessens the measure of male calves brought into the world on the planet. Saumya’s canvases are the recognition, tribute and acknowledgment for that heap of calves-bulls, who passed on before a promising circumstance and couldn’t show up in this world taking into account birth impediments and utilization of sexed semen. Holding the pastoral significance, this majestic creature has been one of the earliest references to livestock in art. With its magnificent wide curving horns and prominent dewlap, it richly adds to its agile line work of remarkable approach. The strength and virility of the bull secures the human race and endows reproduction. Recognised as the most integral part of any culture, this magnificent entity manifesting through the sketchy representations blending with a great linear treatment that holds the volume, against the textural qualities of colour surfaces has been depicted with a bold outlook that upstages the virility of the character magnificently. The entity filled with full of endurance and sustainability presents the theme that enfolds the distinct features of holding its authority over its presence for which it stands for. The artist holds an illustrious role as one witnesses the bull with the bold curves of the horns, the hump that raises its propulsion and thrust, the colour palette believably uncommon in nature drives the character with an unparalleled enchanting beauty and charm. Saumya’s works styled with fantasy of its kind is filled with various dimensions of dreamlike imagery.
