ABOUT US
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”.     – Picasso

Is it true? To the artists and art aficionados, it’s true indeed. Aesthetic experience has the proven ability of cleansing and healing our heart. Why otherwise did the primeval men get inspired to draw and paint on cave walls?

From the cave walls of Maltravieso to the post-modern bricolage, the manifestation of art forms has continuously been changing and evolving.

Although the year 2020 has thrown us into a halt worldwide, the pandemic neither could wither away the universal human inclination towards emotive and cerebral elation that art offers nor should it snap the bridge between artists and beholders. The cyber domain fortunately has opened up an opportunity to reach out to a wider spectrum of people.

Sushovan Art Foundation (SAF) takes up the task to facilitate an uninterrupted communication through a digital platform while organizing a suite of online art exhibitions with different forms of arts: paintings, graphics, sculpture among others. We believe online showcasing of art won’t lose its significance even when normalcy returns rather it may become popular day by day in our progressively busy lifestyle.

SAF also has plans to publish the artworks in printed format, like folder and handout, and subsequent archival preservation of documents and manuscripts. Publication in printed format of course might be a bit difficult to accomplish as it involves funding. SAF would dare take the challenge.

However, online art magazines time to time alongside the art exhibition would be an ongoing project.

There are distinguished artists who have passed away long ago and their work has almost fallen into oblivion. SAF would like to take up the task to rediscover their work with honour and respect they deserve. Some artists have left us recently. SAF would like to pay tribute to them by showcasing their creation in a gallery, online or offline.

SAF intends to serve as a platform to flourish young, promising art talents providing them an opportunity to exhibit their artworks. The larger and long term goal would be spreading art awareness among the people. The progressively hurried life has to be counterbalanced by some sort of meditativeness. SAF believes art would serve that purpose.

Finally, organizing art based conferences comprising lectures/talks by various artists, art critics, display of art based documentaries etc. would be done routinely.

In coming next three months, the following events have been planned:

Online art exhibition along with publishing an E-magazine.

মাননীয় অধ্যাপক শ্রী চন্দন দাস
সরকারি চারু ও কারু কলা মহাবিদ্যালয়, কলকাতার ছাপাই চিত্রকলা বিভাগের বিভাগীয় প্রধান ।

S.A.F. পুরো নাম Sushovan Art Foundation, হাওড়ার প্রখ্যাত শিল্পী সুশান্ত চক্রবর্তীর একটি ওয়েবসাইট সংস্থা। বিগত প্রায় এক বছর আমরা এক ভয়াবহ অতিমারির মধ্যে দিয়ে পার হচ্ছি এবং এই পরিস্থিতিতে শ্রী সুশান্ত শিল্পীদের সৃষ্টি নিয়ে তাঁর ওই ওয়েবসাইট সংস্থার মাধ্যমে স্বসম্মানে ছবির প্রদর্শনীর আয়োজন করছেন তাঁর ব্যক্তিগত উদ্যোগে। এটি তাঁর আয়োজিত তৃতীয় প্রদর্শনী, প্রথমটি হয়েছিল নানা প্রকার ছবি নিয়ে 5th to 30th September, 2020 পর্যন্ত। সেই প্রদর্শনীতে সুশান্ত আমাকে ঠাঁই দিয়েছিলেন, দ্বিতীয় প্রদর্শনীটি December 15th to 25th তাঁর প্রিয় মাস্টারমশাই হরেন দাস কে উৎসর্গ ক’রে। এই তৃতীয় প্রদর্শনীটি কেবলমাত্র ছাপচিত্র নিয়ে। ইংরেজিতে আমি যতদূর জানি Printmaking বলে, এক ঝাঁক নানা বয়সের স্বল্পনামী, নামী ছাপাইকারদের উচ্চপদাধীকারী এবং কিছু কচিকাঁচা ছাপাইকারদের নিয়ে এই প্রদর্শনী, তা প্রায় জনা বিশেক হবে। সুশান্ত স্বয়ং বাংলার এক দ্বিতীয় বৃহত্তম শিল্পী গোষ্ঠী “Calcutta Painter’s” র এক আদি সদস্য। ঐ গোষ্ঠীর ছাপচিত্রী সদস্যরাও অংশগ্রহণকারী। রয়েছেন অধ্যাপনার সাথে যুক্ত নারী ও পুরুষ ব্যক্তিত্ব, রয়েছেন সুদূর খয়রাগড় বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের এক যুবা Scholar। রয়েছেন লব্ধ প্রতিষ্ঠিত ছাপচিত্রীরা, স্বশিক্ষিত ছাপ শিল্পী এদের মধ্যে স্থান করে নিয়েছেন। এছাড়া রয়েছেন নব অঙ্কুরিত কিছু ছাপচিত্রী যাদের কাছে এই প্রদর্শনী যথেষ্ট উন্মাদনার। আমার ঠাঁই না হলেও সুশান্ত আমাকে বন্ধুমান দিয়ে বলেন এই প্রদর্শনীর মুখোবন্ধ লিখতে (যা একেবারেই পারি না) যার মধ্যে Printmaking কি? কেন? এসব নিয়ে কিছু লিখতে, যাতে সাধারণ দর্শক থেকে শিল্পীরা সহজে বুঝতে পারে। 

          আমার মতে সাধারণ দর্শকদের Printmaking না বোঝানোই ভালো, তাঁরা  যেগুলি দেখেছেন সেগুলি যে ছবি, তা বুঝতে পারলেই হলো, আর সবচেয়ে বড় কথা সাধারণ মানুষরা অসাধারণভাবে ছবি দেখে ও বোঝার চেষ্টা করে, কিভাবে করেছে ওসব নিয়ে তাঁরা গবেষণায় বসেন না। আর যাঁরা  Printmaker? তাঁদের Printmaking কি তা বঝবার ধৃষ্টতা আমার নেই, কারণ আমার এখনো অনেক কিছু শেখার বাকি। এ ধরনের অতিমারি পরিস্থিতির প্রদর্শনীতে Gallery গুলিতে গিয়ে আসল ছবির আস্বাদন পাওয়া যায়না। কিন্তু ঘরে বসে প্রদর্শনী দেখলে শিল্পী কেমন দেখতে, তাঁর ছবি কেমন এবং তাঁর পঞ্জী সম্বন্ধে একটা ধারণা তৈরি হয়। প্রদর্শনীগুলি শিক্ষামূলকও বটে।
শিল্পীরা গতিশীল, তাঁরা কখনও থেমে থাকেন না। তাঁদের সৃষ্টি সময়ের দলিল হয়ে থাকে। জয়নুল আবেদিন, চিত্তপ্রসাদ, সোমনাথ হোড়ের ৪২ এর মনঃন্তরের ছবি আজও সে সময়ের দলিল হয়ে আছে। আমার বিশ্বাস প্রদর্শনীর এসব অংশগ্রহণকারীদের মধ্যে অনেক জয়নুল আবেদিন, চিত্তপ্রসাদ ও সোমনাথ হোড় এর মত প্রতিভা আছে, যাঁদের আঁকা ২০২০ র এই করোনা অতমারির ছবি আগামী দিনের দলিল হয়ে থাকবে।

            সবশেষে এই Online প্রদর্শনীর সাফল্য কামনা করি এবং আমার বিশ্বাস সকল দর্শকগণ এসব ছাপচিত্রীদের কলাকৌশল দেখে আনন্দ পাবেন।সকল দর্শক ও শিল্পীবন্ধুদের ২০২১ সালের শুভ কামনা জানিয়ে শেষ করলাম ।
