Poulami Banerjee

Acrylic ,Oil, Watercolor
C16 Forster court 7 Charles Babbage road CB30FY

Hi, I am Poulami. I come from Kolkata, a metropolitan city in eastern India. Currently I am living in Cambridge, UK. My main interests lie in painting, mostly in acrylic and oil based media.


Various forms of visual art attracted me since I was a little child. Even now I delve into the paintings I made when I was a kid, reminiscing those carefree days. Since then, apart from painting, I have been dabbing into the world of sketching, illustration, photography, fashion design and web design.

After completing high school, I got caught up in the rat race and completed a Masters degree in economics. I worked as a web designer in a news company for two years. Finally, I decided to focus completely towards painting and pursue my dream.

I am inspired by the works of many artists: Dali, Van Gogh, Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Gustav Klimt , Rembrandt to name a few.  

My subjects mostly revolve around dark emotions of pain, suppression,suffering ,socio economic class division, burning issues of today's world and loneliness. All my subjects, whether simple Indian women involved in daily tasks, sex workers or even the shiny boots with a noose and blood which depict an autocrat, reflect angst and torment at the hands of a cruel society. The poignant and melancholic images I paint are simply expressions of what I feel and see everyday. Apart from this I study still life and figurative painting.
