Continuous experimentation with the medium of art has led him to master the art of painting on leather, a surface de mending a high degree of expertise end technical perfection for colours to be applied and remain clearly visible.. Done by tanning raw hide and then painting on it, Seth uses the tips of his fingers as a brush, smearing colour on leather to create images from life aid nature, spirituality and rationality. Often embellishing his art with gold and silver foil, he generates startling visual effects, portraying natural beauty and emotional experiences with equal ease. Seth’s innovations on texture also include batik work and stencilling for embossing and relief effects, creating a unique pictorial language. The exhibition of his works is a splendid tribute to this painstaking yet immensely pleasing mode of expression in which he excels.” ‘The Telegraph’, Metro: Time Out: 27th May, 2005, Calcutta.

Overview

Painting on Leather is the result of my experiments over the years. I create paintings with leather colours, photo colours, pen& ink on leather, through preparation of leather painting and its process of preservation are laborious and time taking.

Maintaining all the special features of a painting on canvas, I prefer to use the medium (Painting on Leather & Vellum)as my means of expression. I am Calcutta based practicing artist & experimenting with newer and newer techniques. Done by Tanning raw hide and then painting on it, I use the tips of my fingers as a brush, smearing colour on Leather to create images from life and nature, spirituality and rationality. The Medium of painting is not only time-consuming and laborious, but also permit me to work only in the humidity-free winter months. I have been working in this medium for quite a longtime and have also exhibited my works in different galleries in India andabroad. My exhibits have been highly appreciated among the art critics and media and also from “GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS”, London. U.K. [ Membership Number:24492, Claim ID: 32422]

My Subject is “Do not Destroy Nature & Environment”. This is my new series of paintings. Here I promote animal rights ……voicing environmental concerns. Some Plunderer of Nature had been destroying our environment till today. We must need to concern and protect our environment.
I am a first class graduate & master degree holder from Government College of Art & Craft, Calcutta University, started painting when I was 16 years and have been doing so still now. Drawing inspiration is reflected in his Twenty One special awards & Twenty solo exhibitions along with various invited group shows in different galleries all over India & abroad.

Continuous experimentation with the medium of art has led him to master the art of painting on leather, a surface de mending a high degree of expertise end technical perfection for colours to be applied and remain clearly visible.. Done by tanning raw hide and then painting on it, Seth uses the tips of his fingers as a brush, smearing colour on leather to create images from life aid nature, spirituality and rationality. Often embellishing his art with gold and silver foil, he generates startling visual effects, portraying natural beauty and emotional experiences with equal ease. Seth’s innovations on texture also include batik work and stencilling for embossing and relief effects, creating a unique pictorial language. The exhibition of his works is a splendid tribute to this painstaking yet immensely pleasing mode of expression in which he excels.” ‘The Telegraph’, Metro: Time Out: 27th May, 2005, Calcutta.
