Our Principal & navigator Mr. Gautam Mukherjii is a versatile artist, above 30 yrs of experience, Ex-principal of the art institute “Charu chittram”, gold medalist & renowned worldwide for his excellent, sensitive artworks.
Here is a brief about his theme of artworks & achievements in the artistic world:-
The great Indian artist, the subject of this critique, is Mr. Goutam Mukherjii, whose artwork is known and cherished both in India and other parts of the world. Besides painting, Mr. Mukherjii dabbles in poetry, short stories, and articles. Most of his written work is based on his paintings. No painting is done without some direction and desire in mind, and the artist's canvas is not altered with the brush by a force of habit and dull, uncreative repetition. In the typical routine of day-to-day life, the one thing that holds true is the ever-changing emotional behavior of people, which Mr. Mukherjii captures nicely in his classy yet realistic paintings. That's what most paintings do: they depict some aspect of life or a common behavior of humans. All paintings always carry a particular message, specifically a reflection of the artist's feelings. The surroundings used in the paintings are very unique and contrast each other, and it also proves minor details related to the main paintings -- this is how all the parts of the piece come together. There is much to appreciate in Mr. Mukherjii’s artwork, as it captures the days of ancient India where traditions created a way of life unlike any other, both unique in its theme and respectful to its heritage.
