Narayan Sinha is a self-taught sculptor who creates life-like objects using discarded metal scraps. He draws inspiration from his upbringing in Bengal and uses a range of materials, including scrap automobile parts, fuel tanks, metal drums, and other found mechanical mediums, to create thought-provoking installations.
In his artwork ‘Masks’, he depicts the idea of how we present different versions of ourselves depending on the situation, adjusting our behaviour and even our personalities to suit the context – be it with our spouse, children, colleagues or acquaintances. Narayan Sinha has meticulously documented 105 distinct masks he has worn throughout his life in the artwork. The resulting work is an abstract expression of the myriad versions of the self we all possess. Each mask represents a facet of his identity, a unique persona he has adopted at some point in time.
