About Poulami Banerjee

For an artist, it is never easy to define anything: especially when asked: “Who are you?” Because isn’t that the journey we all are in right now? Is it not an unending quest, from our birth to our death?
I am an artist. I paint. That could be a very short definition of who I am.
I was born and raised in Kolkata, India. And I give the historic and vibrant city a lot of credit for who I am today. The art and creativity around me encouraged me to hold a crayon and paint even before I started talking. Needless to say, my first white canvas was the wall of our living room! ☺
For me, art is a medium to communicate my feelings and thoughts about things I need to say.
“I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.”
― Frida Kahlo
Through my paintings, I want to bring out uncountable stories of people who are always behind the scenes. The social economic and political agendas that stir their lives feature prominently in my art. I like to express my thoughts through symbolism and abstract surrealism.
I love to perceive how shapes and colors appear in the mundane. I am fascinated by the anatomy of the human body: an example of Nature’s brilliant artwork. I study them through still life or figurative paintings.
I am inspired by the works of legends such as Dali, Van Gogh, Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Gustav Klimt, and Rembrandt to name a few.
My training and accolades:
I am a trained graphic designer with corporate experience in illustrations and digital art.
My illustration work has been showcased in some leading Bengali magazines like Anandamela and Adwitiya.
Some words shared by my clients:
I had the pleasure of working with Poulami Banerjee regarding a personalized painting for my family and I must say without exception she was exceptional! From the moment we emailed, I could tell that she had my best interest in mind and she worked with me, listened to my ideas and masterfully recreated it for me on canvas. I love the work so much and loved working with her.
Her creativity, vision and talent were evident in her work and I highly recommend her to anyone that wants a great product by a talented individual that cares. Randall Hopp , California for Paris street scene, 2017
