Born in 1936 in East Bengal (now Bangladesh) Ganesh Haloi migrated to Kolkata during the partition. He pursued his education and graduated from the Government College of Art & Craft in Kolkata in 1956. Following his graduation he joined the Archaeological Survey of India as a Senior Artist. From 1957 to 1963; he was assigned to work at Ajanta as part of his professional duties. In 1964, he began working as a lecturer at the Art College in Kolkata. Ganesh Haloi witnessed the country’s struggle for freedom and its own identity. His works have a distinct idea of time and distance that is conveyed through views of the foreground, middle ground, and background in one plane. This artwork exhibits a remarkable composition of space with colour, form, and narration.
