Celebrating the Artistic Legacy of Bengal with Chaitali Chatterjee at Apricus Art Collection

At Apricus Art Collection, we are honored to present the works of Chaitali Chatterjee, an artist whose roots in the culturally rich state of Bengal, India, have profoundly shaped her artistic journey. Her early exposure to the traditional art of rangoli has blossomed into a celebrated career in oil painting, characterized by her imaginative use of space and color.

From Rangoli to Oil on Canvas

Chaitali Chatterjee's artistic journey began with the intricate and colorful designs of rangoli, a traditional art form from Bengal known for its detailed and vibrant patterns on floors and walls. This early influence is evident in Chaitali's keen sense of color and composition, which later earned her numerous awards in national and international painting competitions during her school years.

Formal Training and Commercial Art

Pursuing her passion further, Chaitali received formal training at Delhi’s prestigious College of Art, where she was mentored by some of India's leading painters such as Manjit Singh Bawa, Bimal Dasgupta, and Bishwanath Mukherjee. Although she initially specialized in commercial art, working as a freelance commercial artist for many years, her true calling was in fine arts, which she embraced fully in 2006 with a focus on oil-on-canvas paintings.

A Flourishing Career in Fine Arts

Since turning her focus to oil painting, Chaitali has created more than 150 paintings, with over three-fourths of these works finding homes with collectors around the world. Her solo and group exhibitions—thirteen solo shows to date—along with numerous participations in workshops around New Delhi, have cemented her reputation as a master of color and spatial composition. Her international acclaim is highlighted by her ongoing contributions to the International Lincoln Center at Louisiana State University, where she has several works on permanent display.

Global Recognition and Influence

Chaitali Chatterjee's art has transcended borders, reaching an international audience with pieces sold in countries including Germany, the U.S.A., Bangladesh, Australia, and Vietnam. Her series of seven paintings at the International Lincoln Association showcases her ability to engage with global themes while maintaining a style that is distinctly rooted in her Bengali heritage.
