Rabin Mondal (b. 1932)
Rabin Mondal,was born in Kolkata, and graduated with Diploma in Fine Arts from
the Vidyasagar Art School. His works were first displayed in 1955, as part of a
group exhibition along with other leading artists of Bengal school. He held his first
solo exhibition in 1961 at the Academy of Fine Arts, Kolkata. Mondal’s works are
mainly figurative.
The industrial belt of Howrah, with its inherent tendency towards violence,
anguish and suffering influenced him deeply, and found its way into his works. So did ugly street battles fought by political parties. Mondal discovered that his artistic
temperament was out of keeping with the hostile environment and situation.
Besides a debilitating knee injury in his childhood created a sense of isolation in
the artist, which also finds expression in his canvas.
He is based in Howrah, Kolkata, from where he began his artistic career.
