About Mr. Madhusudan Chaudhuri
[Sculptor, Painter, & Commercial Artist]
Madhusudan Chaudhuri was born at Balurghat in West Dinajpur, West Bengal, India in the year 1939. Having spent his childhood and adolescence there he moved to Calcutta for his art education and received his training as a commercial artist at the Govt. College of Arts and Crafts. But all along his tenure as a student of commercial art he was haunted by a sense of discontent for not studying his first love - painting and sculpture. Thus, after receiving his degree in Commercial Art, he decided to follow the dictates of his heart and took up sculpture as his next course of study under the guidance of Chintamoni Kar who was also his mentor.
Madhusudan Chaudhuri has always remained a sculptor in the traditional sense having believed in the kind of work which Sir Herbert Read would have described as 'an art of solid form, of mass, and its virtues ... related to spatial occupancy' and has never deviated from it.
