Samindranath Majumdar spent his formative years in suburban Kolkata. Over the years he has witnessed the transformation of the city which he grew up in. His memories of the city had an everlasting impact on him, which surfaced years later in his works. Memory plays an important role in his paintings. He walks the fine line between abstract and representational works.
For Majumdar memory is a subject, not a recollecting device. He is influenced by memory and his process of painting is also identical to memory. Born into a family of painters and writers, he started painting at a very young age.
