Pratap SJB Rana
After spending thirty years in the corporate sector, Pratap SJB Rana succumbed to the call of his heart and chose to put brush to canvas. His works display an eclectic style that reflects his wonderful syncretic sensibility. Influenced by his origins in Nepal, tenures across South East Asia and Sri Lanka, and extensive travels, Pratap's works are contemporary, transcending borders, languages, religions and traditions. Through a combination of richness in colour and texture, and spread over a wide spectrum of thematic interpretations, his resulting works transform standard notions of realism into uniquely expressive forms of impactful abstractions and figuratives. Pratap is clearly a thinking artist who paints from the heart which brings a freshness to each canvas. Represented by a number of galleries, Pratap’s works are much sought after and now a part of private collections of prominent collectors in India and abroad. The artist lives and works in Gurugram, Delhi NCR.
