Sakti Burman was born in 1935 in Kolkata and studied at the Government College of Arts and Crafts, Kolkata and later at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris. Burman is a multifaceted artist, working in medium like painting, sculpture and prints. He is known for his surreal watercolours. His art takes us to the fictional world of mythical creatures and clowns which appear like part of a live performance. There are multiple stories in a single frame generated from his exposure to Indian and western sensibilities. He has exhibited at several international platforms like Galerie des Beaux-Arts, Paris; Piccadilly Gallery, London; Galerie Doucetet Coutureau, Paris; Galleria Nuovo Sagittario, Milan; Galerie Sagar, Zurich and many more in India and abroad. The artist is now settled in Paris.
