Ajit Kumar Das

Born in 1957, Das is a renowned master of natural dyes, painting on fabric using the traditional 'kalam' (a hand crafted bamboo reed). He has been inspired and encouraged by artist Riten Mazumdar, and textile revivalist the late Martand Singh, among others. A recipient of the Government of India's National Award in 1987, his works have been exhibited in India and abroad, including the significant Vishwakarma series of exhibitions conceptualised by the Late Martand Singh in London in the 1980s, and are a part of institutional and private collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Crafts Museum, Delhi, and the Royal Ontario Museum, Canada.
