Indrapramit Roy was born in Kolkata
in 1964. He studied printmaking at the Viswa Bharati University of Shantiniketan
and painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of MS University of Baroda, India. He subsequently studied MA Painting at the Royal College of Art, London. Indrapramit is the recipient of Kanoria Centre Fellowship (1989), Inlaks fellowship (1990-92) to study at RCA, London, Junior Research Fellowship (1993-95) from the Government of India
and more recently the Fullbright fellowship (2004-'05) for six months to the USA.
Indrapramit had shifted from printmaking to painting 'to be able to encompass a larger canvas of life where things happen simultaneously'. Mixed media and collage were incorporated that reflected a concern with surfaces which could be scored, rubbed, folded to involve a constant state of decision making, layering and change. The paintings expressed a whole range of associative or opposing meanings. Recently, he has returned to watercolors. The territory between the real and the imaginary has undergone various changes in the very approach to representation in his paintings.
