Sumita Acharya paints in vibrant, expressive colours that jump off the wall into your heart. Smorgasbord, that's what she playfully calls her works, using the word as a metaphor for the buffet of colours she uses, both hot and cold. Sumita's works are inspired by Fauvism, an early 20th century art movement pioneered Henri Matisse...the real harbinger that brought the Modernist winds with it. Her subjects are a smorgasbord of expressive images in bold lines, intense colour planes,,sometimes abstracted, often distorted.
Sumita (born 1967) graduated from Calcutta University, earned a degree Fashion Design and launched her own pret and avantgarde label "Ritun" for export and domestic market. Later, as a category manager for a multinational footwear giant she proved her skill in marketing functions at a national level. Eventually, she moved away from her corporate career in 1997 to pursue her true passion under tutelage of eminent artists in Kolkata. She honed her skill in drawing, painting, sculptures and murals over the years that followed. Her recent shows in Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata were well received by the art fraternity. Her works have been published in leading newspapers, magazines and art journal. She paints in series and her works are collected in India, UK, USA and France. Sumita lives and works in Mumbai..
Sumita is a member of Bombay Art Society and Art Society of India in Mumbai.
