Madhu Basu

Born in: 1956


In 1988, Basu receives his degree from the Calcutta "Beaux-Arts" University. In 1989, he arrives in Paris as an artist invited to the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts where he works with different pictorial techniques, essentially with pigments. Today, he exclusively paints with pigments.

There is a Bengali proverb which says that "All the universe is contained in a pot." Indeed a potter interacts with all five essential elements - earth, water, wind, fire and space. Pots play a central role throughout the stages of a man's life.

Pots follow us in our daily life with different aspects independently to mentalities' evolution and science's development. "This universal langage, I wanted to express it in my painting as a second meaning after my picturial work which is essentially about mankind." (Madhu Basu, 2001)

Madhu Basu's works show a contrasted writing, full of symbolism. Shades and light are omnipresent. Blank spaces are friends with full ones. Lines which structure space are opposed with the round figures in his paintings. Each one of his work is a place for meditation revealing the growing maturaty of the painter.
