Local artist shares paintings
Patrons of Mission Coffee will be treated to the artwork of Fremont-based painter Durba Sen for the month of April. Born and raised in India, Sen's work finds inspiration in the vibrant colors, people, music, and architecture of her homeland.
"I was always interested in art and started off by taking art classes in Kolkata, India, for a few years. The medium I learned then was watercolor and a very basic introduction to pastels and charcoal," says Sen. But she was unable to pursue art for a long time after, due to the busyness of life raising kids here and taking care of family. When she went back to India for a few years, Sen restarted painting and took some introductory lessons in oil painting. "On returning to the U.S. in 2009, I slowly made time for myself and took up painting. I enjoy working with vibrant colors and just let my imagination roll."
Sen works primarily with oils and acrylics, and her portfolio includes abstracts, landscapes, and still life.
A reception will be held Sunday, April 14 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. where attendees can view the artwork, socialize, and talk with the artist about her paintings. To learn more about Sen and her art, visit www.durbasen.com.
