Contemporary issues and personal experiences form the core of Palash Halder's inspiration. His canvas is the place to vent his emotions, seek answers, express love, hatred, gratitude and respect. Palash's works are a reflection of our society. The drabness of our society reflects in the colour palette. The faces that are always lost in oblivion show up in the portraits he paints. The pain, the intense struggle for survival, the agony of existence finds expression in the carefully crafted wrinkles of the textures. Palash recently held an exhibition of his paintings at the Kamalnayan Bajaj Art Gallery which was inagurated by singer Mr. Abhijeet Bhattacharya.
