JAYASRI BURMAN :
Born into an aesthetically oriented family of Kolkata, she was exposed to art very early in life. Her uncle, Shakti Burman (based in Paris) exerted a strong influence over her developmental years. Having studied at Kala Bhavan in Shantiniketan, and the Visual College of Art, Kolkata, Jayasri went on to receive guidance in print-making under Monsieur Ceizerzi in Paris, a fallout of the avuncular interest. Her technique therefore, became an amalgamation of fine linearity combined with an undercurrent of free expression.
In 1992, Burman's exhibition 'The Baijis' at the Chitrakoot Gallery (Kolkata) earned rave reviews, and the Birla Academy of Art and Culture, Mumbai, followed it up with another success titled 'Urban Signals Shifting Images'. Burman's work has been exhibited frequently in India and abroad besides her exhibitions in London, Paris, Berlin and Hong Kong.
