Biography: ...Tapan Kar the famous artist and painter of our time, apart from his being acknowledged as a poet, an author of several books on art and literature, was born in West Bengal in the year 1954. After his school days, Tapan went straight to the Govt. Art collage for admission. He did not even try other option. He had no brush of his own, the right sketch pencil or an eraser either to compete with the affluent boys in the admission test. But he got though. He succeeded. He always dreamt from his childhood he would become an artist. He had all devotions and dedications. He plunged headlong to reach the goal. He never look behind. If drawing poor or sub-standard color cannot compensate or make good for the same. His might in drawing own fame and fans. Fantastic his paintings? The reaction is probably bit mixed. The critics belong to deferent schools of thoughts. In the name if modern art we learn to judge or appreciates a piece of art a painting a ketch, a drawing a sculpture by bester n parameters. Tapan was and remains too conceptually dear all along about what he wanted or wants to communicate and how. This helped Tapan consolidate his conviction and standpoint with the passage of time to where he is now. Tapan’s commitment for art and life has not precedence too. He joined a government as a art teacher after grounding from the art collage subsequently he did his MA Bengali literature but declined the offer of a higher scale to remain a whole timer of art. He remains so.
