Note: Dimensions listed are unframed. This work is framed to dimensions of 19.5 x 16.5 inches. This work is in excellent condition.

"Untitled (Portrait of a Man)" (2003) is an important example of the surreal and wonderfully bizarre mixed media on paper portraits from the singular and imaginative world of one of India's most famous Contemporary artists, Jogen Chowdhurdy (B. 1939). His style as seen here, combines a strong use of expressive line, sensual forms, decorative patterning, and bold color contrasts. Considered a ‘Master of Line’ and often drawing upon traditional sources for inspiration as well elements of fantasy, Chowdhurdy instills in his figures a notion of intense emotion and inner-reflection.

Jogen Chowdhurdy has exhibited extensively throughout the world at such venues as Singapore Art Museum (Singapore), the National Gallery of Modern Art (New Delhi, India), the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC), and Maltwood Art Museum (Victoria, Canada), among numerous others.
