Born in 1935, Sakti Burman studied at Government School of Art, Calcutta, and later at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts, Paris. Based in Paris for long time, his works reflect the long time influence of Europe. He has foregrounded the figurative, which had receded from the art scenario in recent decades. In India, he continues to inhabit his work in the form of imagery from mythology or popular culture. Birds and animals, dream imagery and mythological figures are frequent occurrences.
