Pinaki Chakraborty Announced as the Guest Artist for AURA 2024 by Retro Kolkata Magazine

Pinaki Chakraborty has been announced as the Guest Artist for the upcoming 'AURA 2024 - International Photography & Art Exhibition.' This prestigious event, hosted by Retro Kolkata Magazine, is scheduled to take place at Nazrul Tirtha, Newtown, Kolkata, from January 13 to January 21, 2024.


'AURA 2024' promises to be an illustrious affair, showcasing an array of artistic talents. The event will kick off with an art exhibition from January 13 to January 15, followed by a photography exhibition from January 18 to January 20.

Pinaki Chakraborty, known for his distinctive monochromatic style, brings a unique approach to the art world. His work predominantly features a fusion of black and white, creating striking contrasts and depth in his paintings. This choice of palette is not just an artistic preference but also a representation of his philosophical outlook. Chakraborty believes that his art, with its base in black, symbolizes the triumph of positivity over negativity, embodying the idea that darkness in life can be illuminated through creativity, effort, and positive thinking.


His technique involves reversing the traditional method of painting by using black as the base color of his canvas. Over this dark background, Chakraborty skillfully adds white and other colors, bringing his creations to life. This method not only highlights his artistic prowess but also conveys a deeper message about societal issues and personal growth.


The announcement of Pinaki Chakraborty as the Guest Artist adds a significant layer of anticipation and prestige to 'AURA 2024'. His participation is expected to draw considerable interest from art enthusiasts and critics alike, eager to witness his unique perspective and approach to art.
