A group of sculptors came together to form Calcutta Sculptor Group - they were Shankar Ghosh, Prabir K Roy, Pravat Majhi, Tapas Sarkar, Kinkar Saha, Saurabh Mazumdar, Subrata Paul, Somnath Chakraborty and Subrata Biswas are the members of the group.

They travel all over India and exhibit regularly. Defying the fact that art is for investment, these artists believe that art is all about sublimating human emotions and thinking. Having a beautiful work of art shows how the collector of that work has elevated his fine feelings and thinking from the mundane objectivity.

Touching moments of love, intimacy, celebration and worship are the major themes that these artists recreate in their sculptures. In some of the works, one could see the artists again and again celebrating the mother and child relationship in various figurative and abstract modes. Ganesha is another interesting theme that most of these artists handle. Lord Ganesha’s unique sculptural form excites these artists in various ways. Man and woman in a loving embrace, a kiss, women waiting for their lovers and above all the sensual and sensuous female forms become themes for these artists to work on their imaginations and later convert them into small and affordable bronze sculptures. They also handle social themes like, labour of workers, education and unity.

We are not idealists but our idea is to get one sculpture in every household in India, the group tends to say. The artists in this group feel that these are aesthetical products with all the qualities and characteristics of art and traditional crafts. Hence, any art lover could feel affinity for these sculptures. These are a collector’s joy and a permanent source of inspiration. As affordable they are, these works could be acquired for keepsake, gifting and even as souvenirs. Art Konsult’s aim is to promote these sculptures along with the modern contemporary art.
