Angikar Sarkar (aged 31 years) is professionally a software engineer and an arts and music aficionado. He is originally from India and completed till 3rd year in fine Arts from Indian Academy of Fine Arts. In 2009, he came to the States to peruse graduate studies from Texas and since 2013, he is staying in north Phoenix, Arizona for professional connections. His wife, Samayita, is the biggest motivation behind his arts. Whenever he gets spare hours, Angikar involves himself in fine arts, poetry and music. Acrylic and water color are his specializations, but he also finds immense pleasure in charcoal art, sketching, pastel touches and tempera. He believes that music and rhythm exist everywhere in this universe, may be in different forms and shapes. As an artist, he wants to explore that symphony and correlate that rhythm with lives, myths, mythologies, objects and nature. Symphony brings happiness and happiness breeds excellent art works which is where his arts are coming from.
“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit”. Ralph Emerson once said.
It is true, indeed!
It is actually impossible to portray the actual beauty of the nature in a mere canvas with a few colors and brushes in hand. The vastness is more than that. This is therefore a very miniscule effort to depict the beauty of the nature.
“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness...” and Wilderness Chapter I and Wilderness Chapter II try to tell the same thing.
“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from its loveliness arises”- Fifty Shades of Green exactly speaks about the same thing. Even everything is green, still there is no monotony and each and every hue is visible.
“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature” and rose is the queen among them. It is more beautiful while its scent is mixed with nocturnal enigma and Night Rose tries to portray the same.
“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all”. The peace lies in Autumn and Serenity Chapter I canvas over the same thought.
