Saikat Maity graduated in 2007 from the Indian College of Art & Draftsmanship with First Class and has won several Awards thereafter. Being a versatile artist, he is equally adept at watercolours and acrylic on canvas paintings. In watercolours, the beauty lies in the freshness of colours, their transparency and purity, and a slightly unfinished look, resulting in more natural an effect. This tradition of painting in delicate washes and tints, captures the lyrical beauty of the Bengal landscape and the hauntingly lyrical city of Kolkata.
