GESTURISM ART

COLOUR MOSAIC, COLOUR FLOWERS

Inspired by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, Sen created a multi-coloured mosaic band to run horizontally across the entire building to visually demonstrate a sense of consistency and coherence. See how fascination with colours swerved Sen’s imagination towards a new vista where colour mosaic and colour flowers complement each other.

INDIA’S BLOODY INDEPENDENCE
IN 1947
When India was partitioned 1947 to create Pakistan, a new country for Muslims, about 20 million people of Bengal and Punjab were displaced and brutally victimized. Sen’s wealthy, literate family had huge landed property in erstwhile East Bengal, the present Bangladesh, which was carved out to be East Pakistan for Muslims. So for being Hindus Sen’s family was overnight evicted from their home. Without taking any possessions, they fled for their lives amidst people warring over religion, and so became squatted refugees in West Bengal.
