April will also see the second edition of Pulp Paper Print, an art event that explores the materials and tools used in an artist's studio. The event is focused on the use of pigments, drawing inspiration from the work of Benode Behari Mukherjee, an artist known for his watercolours, ink washes, and temperas. The event will take a closer look at the process of making and gathering pigments, which was integral to Mukherjee's Santiniketan frescos. The pigments used in these frescos were often extracted from stones, trees, and other organic materials found in the landscape. Pulp Paper Print aims to reveal new ways of interpreting and making art by examining the materials and tools used by artists.
The event takes place on Sunday, April 2, from 11am-4pm at Naya Village, Pingla, Paschim Medinipur near Kolkata. Renowned artist Bapi Chitrakar will be showcasing his skills, following in the footsteps of his family's generations-long tradition of painting, specifically, the Bengal Pattachitra.
