Sakti Burman:

Born in 1935, Kolkata, Sakti Burman is an contemporary Indian artist-painter,sculptor and lithographer, Sakti Burman fills his art with mythic and fantasy content and rich colors. His childhood days are filled with acute loneliness when affection and family members could not make up for the death of his mother. In 1943, Sakti moved to Dibrugarh, Assam where his father shifted the garments and leather trade and where Sakti and his brothers went to school. As Sakti gets the images in his paintings, he reveals that they come from the stories that he narrates.
