Nikhil Biswas' artistic career was cut tragically short in 1966 at the age of 36, at a pivotal point in the shaping of contemporary art history in India. He was a passionate artist, who worked swiftly and fervently, expressing his creativity in an idiom as innovative as it was personal. Following his first solo show in 1953, Nikhil Biswas forged a new group called the Calcutta Painters, together with young contemporaries like Prakash Karmakar and Bijon Chowdhury. Jogen Chowdhury, Rabin Mandal and Gopal Sanyal are other noted members of the Calcutta Painters. Biswas was also a member of the present Society of Contemporary Artists in Calcutta.
