Born in 1936 in Bengal, Suhas Roy studied Painting at the Indian College of Arts and Draftsmanship in Kolkata, and then Graphics at Atelier 17 and Murals at École des Beaux-Arts, both in Paris. He taught Art and headed the department of Painting at Kala Bhavan Santiniketan until his retirement. His creative oeuvre reveals his preoccupation with the female face and form and his subjects are romanticized, inhabiting a world of grace, fantasy, sensuality and innocence. There is a mystical suggestion to be found in all his work, including the Radha series that shows his consummate skill in handling texture and palette. His choice of material – crayons, charcoal, pastels, acrylic, water colours, and oils – helps to create his entwined Radhas, surrounded by decorative floral vines and landscapes adding a unique touch to his sensuous imagery. With a large body of work to his credit, Suhas has won many accolades and awards and has been exhibited extensively in numerous exhibitions and international shows, including the Asian Graphic Prints Traveling Exhibition USA, Tokyo Print Biennale Japan and Contemporary Indian Art Yugoslavia, besides at various metros in India and around the world. The artist lives in Kolkata and works from his studio at home.
