Like Husband Like Wife: Jayasri Burman

Jayasri Burman is an extremely accomplished Indian artist today. Born and brought up in Kolkatta, Burman went and studied print making under Monsieur Ceizerzi in Paris. She was also exposed to art very early on in life through her uncle Shakti Burman. 

Burman's paintings are primarily watercolor based, focused on indian mystical contents. Her paintings have a dream-like and spiritual quality about them that evoke the imagination. She often uses the colors red, blue, and saffron, since many of her works are inspired by nature. She has won several awards for her art works including The Certificate of Merit in 1987 and the National Award in 1985.
