Narayan Sinha, the talented self-taught sculptor and artist comes from Nalhati, Birbhum, a district town of West Bengal.

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
