Sandeep Jigdung was born (1978) in Assam. Sandeep did his BFA and MFA in Painting from College of Art, New Delhi. His works predominantly reflect the experiences of his birthplace.The vivid and dominating greens in his canvas can almost be considered as a tribute to his vision and impression of the North East. His towering bamboo grooves which seem to dwarf all and sundry in his works are definitive makers of his experience as a young boy growing amongst the verdant landscape of North East. His paintings reflects his nostalgia for his home and his need to relive through the various motifs, values and motifs. Unlike the nineteenth century scientific drawings of the flora and fauna undertaken by the colonial enterprise which was more to do with control, oppression and training the native, the artist’s vision in stark contrast offers a respectful and sensitive treatment of nature. The artist lives and works in Assam / Delhi.
