Narayan Sinha, the tal­ented self-taught sculp­tor and artist comes from Nal­hati, Birb­hum, a district town of West Ben­gal. Be­ing a sci­ence grad­u­ate he hails from a busi­ness fam­ily deal­ing with au­to­mo­bile parts. To­day Narayan ex­tends his idea of art and aes­thet­ics in var­i­ous forms, be it sculp­ture, art in­stal­la­tions, space de­signs, jew­ellery de­signs, paint­ings and many more. This na­ture in­spired, pas­sion­ate artist be­lieves that na­ture se­lected ev­ery­one in its own way to ful­fil the broader spec­trum of life. The projects like Sonar Tori restau­rant at Raichak on Ganges, Ekru De­signer Ap­parel store and Debi, the mul­ti­di­men­sional art project are some of his best con­cepts in re­cent times.

Narayan shares with VM&RD that he grew up hav­ing var­ied cre­ative in­ter­est and used to give shape to his cre­ative thoughts in the form of dif­fer­ent sculp­tures out of junk au­to­mo­bile parts like metal drums, fuel tanks of kerosene stoves and old uten­sils, at his father’s fac­tory. With­out any for­mal train­ing as a sculp­tor, Narayan al­ways feels very close to Mother Na­ture and be­lieves in giv­ing back some­thing to his roots through dif­fer­ent artis­tic ven­tures. Mainly known for his re­cy­cled iconic art in­stal­la­tions and reper­to­ries, he loves to cel­e­brate beauty in its very raw form and ex­per­i­ments with them.

Sinha opines, “I am al­ways in­ter­ested to cre­ate some­thing new which gives me full free­dom to nur­ture my skills and ideas. Be it a re­tail space de­sign, an F&B out­let or mak­ing a piece of jew­elry or de­sign­ing a

com­mer­cial in­ter­stel­lar, all of them should in­spire me to give my best and they must be an ex­ten­sion of my own per­son­al­ity. For ex­am­ple the fash­ion re­tail space Ekru is very close to my heart be­cause the big­gest cre­ative chal­lenge for me was to pre­serve and re­store the old charm of the tra­di­tional house yet giv­ing a con­tem­po­rary look and feel by us­ing very earthy and rus­tic ma­te­ri­als. My motto from child­hood is to spread art among the mass, and fine arts and fash­ion has got a very close con­nec­tion with each other, thus projects like Ekru, Sonar Tori, or be it the com­mer­cial of­fice space of Srinkant Mo­hta, all gave me huge op­por­tu­ni­ties to ad­dress my target au­di­ence which in­cludes every sec­tion of peo­ple by touch­ing the func­tional as well as aes­thetic point of view of a sculp­tor. In fu­ture also, I wish to cre­ate de­signs and art in­stal­la­tions with an aim to pre­serve our In­dian art by cre­at­ing a fu­sion with con­tem­po­rary art.”l
