Meet The Artist: Mr. S. C. Suman
Since the beginning of my pioneer work in the field of Mithila painting. I have juxtaposed contemporary issues with the traditional form, natural colors and spiritual aesthetics of my native land. I have simply found myself as a link in the long heritage in the development of this home- grown works of art and have brought the techniques, tools and the outline (which were in the verge of extinction) of our social semiotics at the forefront of the international community. While doing so, my grandmother, surrounding nature and my keen observation has proved to be the source of inspiration for me. The progressive time has father motivated me to grab in the social change in my paintings.
To sum up, Mithila art is original to its surrounding nature. It is an ancient, an indigenous and traditional one it is getting modernized day by day. My special focus is to revive traditional techniques, natural pigments and aware people through aesthetic means of Mithila arts. Also distinguishes himself with a flair for incorporating issues of contemporaneous political conflict and social disharmony prevalent after earthquake of 2015 that devastated, Nepal also finds expression in this series. Titled Rebuild Nepal, the triptych expresses the plain felt by the artist and the people of Mdhesh over the death and destruction caused by earthquake. Work mourns the loss an ancient heritage that drew Miyhila sages and pilgrims to the valley. My portrays the humanitarian assistance provided by those effected by the earthquake.
