A LIFE IN FULL COLOR

Artist Subho Sarkar Is Inspired by the Culture and Landscapes of the Kingdom of Bahrain


Subho Sarkar decided to focus on art once he retired. Based in the Kingdom of Bahrain, a country in the Persian Gulf, he delights and moves art lovers around the world with his talent and distinctive style.



“With retirement being right around the corner, I knew I'd finally have time to devote to learning more about my passion, creating art. This was a way to reinvent myself, to revitalize and live a life filled with colors rather in the black and white of corporate life,” he says. “Expressing myself with the help of my drawing has allowed me to capture my emotions and bring them to life via my different creations. After completing over 40 years of service in various sectors within the Kingdom of Bahrain, I turned to the arts completely. With almost no formal education in art, aside from having the chance to meet various inspirational sources along the way, success was uncertain.”


During his first years of schooling from Patha Bhavana, Shantiniketan, the prestigious institute of Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, he did receive an initial sense of the importance of arts and creation. This started in his younger years, under the guidance and influence of various eminent Indian artists. He has pursued a career as a freelance artist for the last three years, and has come up with a range of original ideas and theories.


He uses mixed media as the greatest art tool. With the ability to use clay, textiles, acrylic, oil, charcoal, wire work and other elements to create different compositions, he creates extraordinary works for either sale or exhibition.


“Having lived the best half of my life in this Kingdom, I draw inspiration from its culture, people and landscape. From its beautiful mosques, to the deserts around Sakhir, the sunrises in Hidd or The Souq in Manama, every aspect of this Country has helped me to grow to be the artist I am today,” explains Sarkar.
