A Maity good time at the Rashtrapati Bhavan

Waking up to dancing peacocks below his balcony at Rashtrapati Bhavan, artist-in-residence Paresh Maity tells Brunch how he painted a new paradigm.

A Sixties child, growing up in Tamluk, a suburban town near the Bay of Bengal, Paresh Maity sat on the waterfront for hours, looking at clouds and marvelling at the sky changing hues. “During my childhood, I was fortunate to be surrounded by the resplendent colours of nature. Over the years, nature became one of my biggest inspirations,” says Maity.
