FROM THE MASK MAKER SE­RIES BY NAN­DAN PURKAYASTHA PEN AND INK ON PA­PER, 56 x 38 CM, 2013

Var­i­ous per­form­ing artists in­spired Nan­dan Purkayastha’s Mask Maker se­ries. For the 27-year-old As­sam-born artist, masks rep­re­sent pure fan­tasy char­ac­ters, whose thoughts and ex­pres­sions linger on with au­di­ences. He also ran­domly in­cludes birds, cane fur­ni­ture, and other ev­ery­day el­e­ments among the peo­ple mak­ing masks to lend form to his styl­ized black-and-white com­po­si­tions. Purkayastha is an alum­nus of the Na­tional In­sti­tute of Fash­ion Tech­nol­ogy, Delhi.
