Amit Kalla was born 7 February 1980 in Jaipur, Rajasthan. He is a young visual artist and a refined Hindi poet. Kalla is presently researching Bhakti Literature and the artistic notions of Rajasthan & widely observing children response on art mediums, while working as a freelance artist and writer. He lives and works in Jaipur, Rajasthan.


In his works there is an attempt to create a world through text where indices of silence speak; undiluted, compressed vibrations are realized. His work gives a feeling of being left unfinished and yet it does not seem incomplete. It is not possible to look at it in terms of a beginning leading to an end. The strength of Kalla’s work is that it represents an Indian artist’s quest for an indigenous tenor rather than a superficial inventory of native motifs, there is nothing about his work that relies on a static Indian Identity. In the context of the New India with its glamour and explosive economics, he is searching for a new representation of the innermost dramas of his culture while maintaining universality and individuality. Kalla demonstrates that a painter can enact the innermost dramas of his culture while maintaining the individuality, even the idiosyncrasies of his performance There is a certain naivety in both his painting and writing which represents detachment but contains too a knowing gesture of assurance. His poetry & art works both are spiritually intuited.


In his own words, “You need to be absolutely unconstrained and not imprisoned to be able to create art. Let illusions be superfluous and you buoyed by its force, totally in meditation and in consonance with the universe to lose yourself to find oneself. You don’t think what is that you are about to paint but let yourself flow to the rhythm. The artworks are pleasantly abstract and soothing to the mind.”
