In a media-riddled world where images rapidly circulate, moving from momentary commodity (“gone viral”) to forgotten waste, Sangram Majumdar is interested in “what stays.”
As he told John Seed in a Huffington Post interview, he is an observational painter rooted in the concrete:
Often the reason I start with something physical and actual is because it gives me something to fight against. There’s immediacy to the experience that gets actualized through paint. But I also work from photos, memory and maquettes.
