Samit Roy


Samit Roy is a visual artist and poet who believes that every "successful" art object is the result of a series of interrelated social events, and whose work explores both the visual characteristics of text and narrative elements of visuals. Brought up in the gray zones between urban Victorian Kolkata and its semi-rural suburbs, his work further attempts to articulate a small part of the history of his time and context. He has worked with UPENN's South Asia Center and Department of South Asia Studies, and the Canadian Institute of International Affairs as visual artist and design consultant.
