SESSION WITH SRI BIRESWOR BHATTACHARJEE
On April 30, 2018, an eminent personality, Sri Bireshwor Bhattacharjee blessed the Dipsites today with his gracious presence at DPS Junior Wing Campus. Sri Bireswor Bhattacharjee is a retired professor from the Patna College of Art & Craft. Bhattacharjee Sir himself had come to Patna as a young man, a refugee from present day Bangladesh in 1950. A government scholarship for year took him to Istanbul, from there he travelled to Europe coming to Italy and Paris, where he came across the works of Marino Marini, Marcel Duchamp and the performative practices of the many Fluxus Group & Arte Povera artists. He returned to Patna in 1969, to curate with Sri. Shyam Sharma a series of performances, light projections along with the students of the Fine Art College. Bhattacharjee Sir shared some quality time with the students of Madhubani, Sketching, Calligraphy and Painting club students. First and foremost, he began the session by drawing Lord Shiva on the board and asked the students about the expression of the picture.
Then he drew a morning landscape with a sun, a tree and asked the students to add on something one by one. After a couple of students had added whatever came on their mind, Sir Bireshwor Bhattacharjee explained about the perspective, concentration and creation. The session ended with an acknowledgement by the Headmistress where she also briefed the students about Bhattacharjee Sir and his accomplishments.
A souvenir was also presented to Sir on behalf of the school.
