Art Alive Gallery presents an exhibition and book ‘Paresh Maity: World of Watercolours’, which showcases 40 years of Paresh Maity’s journey with Watercolours.

Watercolour is the most difficult and oldest medium in the field of painting as there are many limitations. The size of the art work is a big challenge specially when done on a large scale. The application has to be timed and finished before the colour dries.

Paresh Maity has mastered the art of handling watercolour. He started doing watercolours at the age of 10 and since then it has been 40 years, he has been doing watercolours very passionately and has been experimenting with the medium. He has won many recognitions for his watercolours nationally and internationally including the ‘Royal Watercolour Society Award, London’ in 2002.

Paresh Maity is one of the finest watercolourist in the Country today and has been recognized among one of the renowned watercolourists in the world.

The exhibition will showcase Watercolours by Paresh Maity from past 40 years. The audience will experience his watercolours since his childhood.

As renowned poet and writer Gulzar says:

“He comes across a great traveller. Sometime reminds me of coalmines and Potato Eaters of Van Gogh in Oil.

Even his paintings of European Landscapes carry the feeling of Past and History.

Paresh has a mood of Nostalgia, which travels with him.”

The exhibition is accompanied with the release of a major book entitled ‘Paresh Maity: World of Watercolours’. The book showcases his journey with Watercolours spanning 40 years. It documents watercolours since his early age and covers the subject span from his home town Tamluk a small village in West Bengal and other parts of India and abroad including China, Japan, England, and Venice amongst other destinations from his travel.

This publication is a most comprehensive and illustrated book talking about the Watercolour and the possibilities in this medium.

Our Hon’ble President Shri Pranab Mukherjee says “I hope this book will help popularize watercolours and be an inspiration for young painters to venture into this medium”.
