Specialized in oil painting portraits
Pratima Roy is based in Gurgaon, India. She specializes in oil painting portraits and is inspired by the concept of realism. A simple, kind and passionate woman whose qualities always shine through her art.
Painting is transformative both for her and her work. It changes with each stroke of her brush and she changes along with it. At the end of the whole process, neither the painting nor herself is similar to the rough sketches.
PAINTINGS & POETRY
Most of Pratima Roy’s paintings are of the scenes of the past she has lived through, of the places she has been in. Through her painting she tells a story she has lived through, or a story she tries to weave in her works.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
