Radha Binod Sharma

Radha Binod Sharma was born on the 4th of March 1964 in Kamalpur, Tripura. He was educated at the Kala - Bhavana, Santiniketan and Baroda 1989 and 1991, where he studied painting in the Faculty of Fine Arts. He was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshield Foundation award and the Charles Wallace award. This was followed by the prestigious Delfina trust residency award which took him to London for one year. He has exhibited his work in the international arena; he has held ten solo exhibitions and numerous group shows.  In his work Sharma represents the people, impediments and venues of marginal or urban life. He uses a distinctive palette which illuminates earthly objects and the protagonists with luminescent light. The red, green, yellow and blue are nuanced along a scale of emotive association stretching from sombra to the lurid, from the rawness of a brick wall to the gaudy or neon lit figures reminiscent of Indian movie posters.  Sharma’s colors are shot through with psychedelic light of a fire flickering behind the surfaces of pigment, his figures and objects assume, in consequence, the aura of portent and riddle. His paintings focus on ‘life on the edge’, lives which are dominated by egoistic and unbridled desire which creates for the human participants the illusion of repose.  In the shadows sit the power-merchants, the brokers of pleasure, who ultimately deliver to their recipients ‘a living death’. 

Radha Binod Sharma lives and works in London.
