A normal downtown street turns into a mystery land on a rainy day, with people, trolleys and cars emerging from and disappearing into the rain and mist. The car lights reflect on the asphalt as if on a mirror. "This painting was inspired by a rainy day in the city, where everyday life gets magical as raindrops fall pitter-patter in the background," says Swarup.

Swarup Dandapat

Kolkata, India

Artist Swarup Dandapat preserves the memory and atmosphere of places in time with his impressionist watercolor paintings. Growing up in a middle-class family in a small industrial town in India, Swarup took the unlikely path of pursuing art from a young age. With great support from his parents, he earned a BFA from Government College of Art & Craft in Kolkata, India, one of the country's preeminent art schools. After 15 years as a web designer, he transitioned to a full-time career as a professional artist. Out in the world, Swarup soaks in the atmosphere, makes several sketches and takes photos for his inspiration. Back in his studio, he looks at his references for days until scenes mix together, experiences get superimposed on each other and an image begins to form. "Watercolor empowers me to capture the charm of a city, its people and its architecture. I call my watercolor paintings the Gallery of Life, where the subject and the medium both breathe life." He enjoys listening to low key music, mostly instrumental, to create a calm and soothing environment for his creative process. When Swarup is not painting, he enjoys the creativity in cooking and baking as well as taking care of his plants, which he considers family. His work has been showcased at galleries in Dubai, New Delhi and Paris.
