Born 1979, Kamar Alam did his BFA in painting from the College of Art in Delhi followed by MFA from Lalit Kala Sansthan, Agra.
Known for his distinct portrayal of human form his work brings forth the emotions hidden beneath the surface laying bare one’s perception and fears or dreams of life. There is a cool serenity that pervades his compositions, as his protagonists appear to look inwards rather than outward. The figuration juxtaposed with a smearing of neutral elements at times and geometric shapes at others, makes engaging art.
Winner of AIFACS Award for Best Painting he has two solo shows to his credit and his work has been exhibited in many group exhibitions held in different parts of the country and abroad including at Dubai. The artist lives & works in Delhi.
Kamar Alam was born in Moussourie, and has featured in numerous group shows in India and abroad.
