About the Artist

Back Go to Works

Born 1948 Midnapore ,West Bengal, India.

Ashok Hazra’s canvasses are all pieces of his life's experiences sewn together in a string to form a garland of memories. One series follows another – Fantasy, Ma, Reminiscence, Clown, Krishna, Devi and now the Flute Player. The lush green Meadows, shady banana groves, the fragrance of wild grass combined with the rich smell of rain soaked mother earth still tingles his dreams. Amidst all this beauty, peace and tranquility the sweet melody of the flute beckons him to his carefree days spent in the countryside.
