Basudeb Pal Majumder, born in Kolkata in the year 1970, is a 1st Class Bachelor in Visual Arts (fine arts) from Government College of Art & Craft, Kolkata . Since his childhood he has an extreme urge for innovations and a strong inclination towards the art world which gradually transformed into his passion for drawings & paintings.
Basudeb, as a part of his work and also for his wildlife photography, spends a lot of time in remote places, tribal villages & forests just to get in touch with another world. He has always been inspired by the sensuous beauty of life & living entities which provoke the visual philosophy of his canvases with images that are juxtaposed to the web of enigma illustrated by fragments of memory, visual humors & impressions of subconscious mind. "Living in a busy metro city, I always play a game of hiding in the inexplicable; find myself in the unknown, lost in canvas" - says Basudeb.
