As a young Artist Sunita was born and brought up in Kolkata, hub of art and culture, she was always drawn towards human emotions and expressions. It was magical to be able to put them on canvas which enthusiastically motivated her to become Visual artist. There is always a story telling element in Sunita’s creative process highlighting social issues, more particularly of women and children. It illustrates her perception, feelings, sentiments translating them into paintings through vibrant and subtle play of colours.
Painting to Sunita has been an emotional upturn since her childhood. It opened a world of creativity and untiring exploration, a voyage through colours with the manifested outside colours, blending into the colours of her, inside, revealing in a spectrum, most intimate and emotional.
Sunita’s works are in few colours, usually no more than three to five, in her compositions.
Her rendezvous with various mediums including oil, charcoal, acrylic and mixed media and diverse elements interweave that magic to completeness, of the paintings.
Sunita is very passionate about her subject and they find their voice through Sunita’s expositions when the viewer finds them in conversation with the subject.
During her years in Birla Academy of Art and Culture from the year 1987-1990, Sunita had a great privilege to learn about art form under the mentorship of Smt. Karuna Saha a bold and fearless artist of Bengal herself with an independent thought process, Sunita learnt that art was a more humane form of expression and it made a profound impact on common man. It was a powerful tool wherein in Sunita could voice her soul and hence a medium for the cause Sunita strongly believe in. Sunita did ample work using this powerful tool as a contribution to society.
A famous Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci echoes her thoughts
“Where the spirit does not work with hand there is no art”
Sunita’s belief, ‘One must still have the chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing ‘STAR”.
