Born in 1981 (Kolkata), Santanu studied sculpture at the Government College of Art & Craft, in Kolkata followed by a Masters at MSU Baroda.
Environmental issues that face humanity are the core concern for Santanu that he hopes to communicate through his work. The unscrupulous use of natural resources, the impact of consumerism, and the mindless exploiting of resources for minor comforts are some of the emotions that he expresses through his practice. He works with a host of materials – e-waste, paper, wood, aluminium litho-plate, graphite, steel pins, amongst others.
Santanu was part of the Gurugram Interactive Public Art Project organized by I Am Gurgaon in 2019. He was selected for Khoj Peers Share Program in 2015.
