Village Gallery July Artist of the Month - Debanjana Bhattacharjee

The Village Gallery welcomes July’s Artist of the Month, Debanjana Bhattacharjee.

Originally from Mumbai, India, Debanjana Bhattacharjee moved to Myrtle Beach, SC in 2015 from Texas. She has a post graduate diploma in Modern and Contemporary Indian Art History from Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai.

A self-taught artist, Debanjana enjoys working with acrylics. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally, has participated in many juried shows and won awards. In 2015, she was recognized with a proclamation from the Mayor of Edinburg, TX for her artistic achievements. She was the curator of Twitter Art Exhibit 2020, an international art event supporting charities worldwide.

Debanjana’s artistic practices are a blend of her Indian and western aesthetic sensibilities. She believes the desire to create and express is part of her everyday art making practice. Debanjana is exploring South Carolina through en plein air and wants to bring forth a dialogue between nature and self. The current series of works represents her observations and experiences while chasing sunrises and sunsets in Myrtle Beach.
