Dr. Pratik Sagar

Assistant Professor, Art & Design


Brief Profile: As an interdisciplinary artist and pedagogue with more than 13 years of experience, my creative expression and its real time application requires a didactic approach to reflect on my daily transactions with people and surroundings. I find that my artistic expression is often symbolic and suggestive rather than too narrative or explicit in its conveyance. Furthermore as someone who is passionate about art integrated education, I perceive both my passion for teaching and fervor for art-writing as an addition to my personal creative freedom. I feel that this allows me to engage with the residual thoughts from one commitment reflected into the proceeding assignment, and in this process ensuring a changeable narrative to my individual artistic language. Fascinated to know more of my peers and fellow artists, I had begun an online artist interview series called Agyeya LIVE through the first lockdown for Covid-19 during my Ph.D. study days. It allows me conversations with artists of various ardors. Recalling the benefits of curatorial reflections to my own art portfolio, I got recently initiated to a curatorial venture. I see it as broadening a support structure to young artists annexed by arty fluxes and personal tumults, as well as an opportunity to collaborate, redress and renew some of the recurring old patterns of my personal flavour for art.
