Untitled and more art by Chittaprosad

Untitled

Linocut

In Chittaprosad’s visualisation of a scene of despondence during the drought in Maharashtra, we notice a distinct shift in tone and medium. He is no longer sketching in a realistic mode but has moved to linocuts, which allows him to opt for a more eastern European expressionist style. This is not the individualised illustration of the Bengal famine but a more abstract expression of pain and hopelessness that is achieved through the distorted forms and the furrowed black shapes that seem to linger in a liminal zone between living and dead.
