The sculptures by Tarun Maity and Suvajit Samanta that will be showcased at the Bangalore Lit Fest have been curated by Janus Art Gallery, Kolkata. Tarun Maity works on wood, terracotta, bronze and ABS fiberglass. His portfolio is bold, experimental and switches between the realistic and the surreal. He names his sculptures to resonate semi-autobiographically and by rendering everyday objects in these materials. He challenges us to look again and question our assumptions through his works.

Suvajit Samanta works on steel, fibreglass and with metals like bronze. He is one among the existing artists who work on these products.  His figures are detailed, modern and directional even while they suggest a child’s take on what a grownup world might be where the storybook reality ends.
