Dibyangshu Dasgupta

The uniqueness of Dibyangshu's work is defined by his philosophy. In his words, “With the ultimate vision of a child I smile at your serious world that thrives on nothingness … to discover some day that truth was the very ‘fun' you always ignored”. Dibyangshu's art is ‘child art' in the profoundest sense. His apparently simple images mirror a child's heightened perception of the world, instinctive awareness of the small but telling detail, and a transmutation of the visible world into an experiential fantasy of line, form, and color.

Dibyangshu's imagination plays with everything he sees. His inspiration may come from one of his students at work or play, a workaday object, everyday scenes of nature and animals, a soaring kite, a festival, or even a fragment of folk song. So, the king and queen on a chessboard come quaintly alive; an anchor transforms into a scuba diver; birds preen or communicate gravely, or in blurs of animated movement; a storm becomes a ‘wild whisper' of flyaway kites and trees; a huge crescent moon crashes in a passage of light, into the broken roof of a hut; ‘Mother Durga' at her festival becomes a fiercely inspirational amalgam of mobile line and color; and gravity often dissolves into playfulness as in ‘Sagi and the Moon'. The images captured are both Indian and eternal.

The artist's style is elemental. Detail is selectively reduced to its fundamental significance in the total composition, to convey the ‘genius' and emotion of the moment. In their simplicity the compositions sometimes verge on suggestive abstraction, as in ‘The Sea Saw'. Motion and form are indicated with exact placements of appropriate lines. Form and line blur sometimes into a fantasy of color as in ‘The Wedding Car' or ‘Mother Durga'. Perspective too assumes a revealing dimension – a child's point of view – in the ‘Kite Flyer'. And the artist uses a finely textured paper for his compositions, which confers on his images the haze of fantasy as of pictures seen through water.

Dibyangshu claims that he has learnt more from his child students than they have learnt from him. ‘The child is father of the man' says Wordsworth, and in Dibyangshu's art the ‘child view' becomes a ‘world view', acutely sensitive, profoundly significant – a departure from a tired reality towards a new possibility.
