Born in 1971 in Kolkata, Partha Shaw did his BFA from Kala Bhavana (1992)
and MFA from Rabindra Bharati University (1994).
The artist had his artistic side develop in Santiniketan where amidst the nature
and the influence of great masters like Nandalal Bose, Tagore on one hand
and later contemporary and modern masters like K.G. Subramanyan, Sunil
Das, on the other, his mind found the rich ground to develop his imagination
and creative side.
He gradually developed his own style called the Figurative symbolism,
wherein he used human figures in his landscapes as a means of
representation of his thoughts, and to make use of non-abstract form in his
painting. His work essentially Indian is steeped in modernity and his
landscapes come to life with colours of gold grey white and blue adding a
touch of mystery and fantasy.
He has participated in innumerable solo and group shows nationally and has
been the recipient of the Nirod Baran Memorial Award from Rabindra Bharati
University 1996, and in 1993 Award from Painting from Academy of Arts,
