Born and brought up in Medinipur, West Bengal, in 1995, Anirban completed his BFA in Painting from The Indian College of Arts and Draftsmanship in 2017 and M. F. A. in Painting from S. N. School of Arts and Communication from the University of Hyderabad in 2019. Anirban lives and works in Medinipur.

Often like a wanderer or a strolling player, Anirban encounters and documents the poignancy of city life. Hailing from a small town himself, the artist has struggled to be a part of a fast-moving urban metropolis. From being in awe of the vastness of the city to finding his own space there – the constant negotiation has been a discovering process for Anirban’s practice. His architectural cityscapes are mostly devoid of human presence - one can only spot a cat or a lone figure somewhere. With a rather European colour palette, Anirban’s coffee-washed imageries invite viewers to experience the nuances of solitude, melancholia, and the verve of urban life.
