A voyage unlike any other, 'The World on a Canvas' is as much about self-discovery as it is about storytelling. Travelling forms an integral part of Paresh Maity's life, that flows into his works of art. An indefatigable traveller Paresh has traversed the Continents drawing inspiration from landscapes and monuments, from history and people, from cities and hamlets. His travels have taken him to many destinations in India and abroad. These journeys have shaped his palette as he has instinctively transposed the essence and splendour of places into his works. ‘The World on a Canvas’ illustrates the artist's drawings, watercolours, oils, mixed media and sculptures. Renowned photographer Nemai Ghosh captured the artist at work in different geographical settings. It is a treat for the beholders of the connoisseurs of Paresh Maity's art and Nemai Ghosh's black and white photography. Eminent film personality Sharmila Tagore, an ardent admirer of Paresh's art, has vividly encapsulated his evolving journey of art in this publication.
