Somnath Singh Studied Fine Arts from College of Arts, New Delhi and held his first solo exhibition at Dhoomimal Art Gallery in 2013. His art is a satirical take on modern day human life. He draws common things from his surroundings. He works are partly obscured human figures indicating the facelessness of the today’s world. The way the artist uses colours, by pairing deep colours against dull backgrounds, heightens the sense of melancholy one experiences while looking at the works. The works are cathartic for the viewers, as a city dweller caught in the circle of work, life, money, one can empathise with the predicament of the characters of the artist’s works.
