A senior artist from Bengal whose canvases draw largely from the mystical world of nature done in robust and earthy colors, layered with richness of thought and pain. Regarded as one of the pillars of contemporary art and a significant contributor of the modernist art movement in Bengal. His paintings describes that women are the integral part and nature is closest to him. He is rebel in his own world, challenging the barriers imposed by traditional ideas as well as contemporary theories.

About his paintings, Jahar says, "I believe myself being an artist of social consciousness, not imposed on me by the society. It grew slowly within me as I came across the melodramatic relations and the complications of the society. The summation of the events of nations and its surroundings indifferently move my soul. The conscious mind glimmers to give rise to the paintings that play around within nature and society. Women play an integral part of my paintings. I revel in my own world challenging the barriers imposed by traditional ideas as well as contemporary theories. I flood my canvases with emotions through spectrum of colors and the time comes when I hear my inner voice and I stop. A new canvas begins with a new creation for every lovers of art.”

  • Testimonial

    Mojarto.com is probably the first online gallery which is promoting several artists on one platform, and I have fortunately been a part of the same for the past 8-9 years. The team has always been extremely polite and highly supportive with my queries. I think, in India, Mojarto.com is the only gallery who has sold the maximum number of paintings of mine, both within and outside the country. Extremely applaudable services. I would recommend to my artist friends to join Mojarto because this is the only gallery that is so transparent with artists as well as with buyers. I would like to work with your gallery for my entire life and career. Thank you!
