The visual study of the co existence of plants and urban structure is the main
subject matter. Basically the natural and non natural form are depicted through
the drawings with ink, water colour, acrylic and mix media. Decorative form and
pictorial imagery are being embedded through textile ,drawing and mix media.
The representation of the present urban society where the old Kolkata and the
new one are in cohabitation ,are depicted in some of my artworks through
vegetation. While the adoptation of plants by the society has been shown in
some works ,at the same time ,the counter attack of plants to the society has
been depicted also where the society has been swallowed by the plants.
Brojeswer Mondal grew up in Siliguri, Darjeeling. His work revolves around the visual study of urban structures, juxtaposed with natural and non-natural forms. In the current body of work, Mondal leaves hazy background, one that is trifling yet potent. He responded to his immediate everyday living space, the study of light and shadow from the first ray of sun till it sets in the hills of his hometown. The minimal drawings evoke a sense of connection, encouraging a minute inspection of the work, something that we may not be used to in our fast-paced lives. And this act will put the viewer on an inward journey is the humble hope of Mondal for his art.
He completed his bachelors at the Government Art College, Kolkata and moved on to Rabindra Bharti University, Shantiniketan for his masters.
