Pintu Sikder specialises in sculptures made of brass. Using the humble brass nut as his medium, Pintu Sikder creates sculptures of amazing strength and beauty. The artist’s oeuvre involves everyday objects. With an amazing command over structural movement, Pintu has the ability to make a hard metal like brass move with fluidity and grace in his stunning sculptures. The Kolkata based artist will tell you himself, quite freely and with no artifice, that he comes from very humble origins, and has worked hard over the years — first to study, and now to create.
