About Us

Sarbani Chatterjee the art teacher always cherished this dream to have her own art school, imparting her knowledge to anyone willing to learn. It was a very humble beginning, she began her journey with a handful of budding artists, under the aegis of Onkkon Art Studio. Over the next few months the number grew as well as the budding artists bloomed. She arranged a small in-house exhibition with the talent pool. It was the impetus the students needed. The unique show was also an encouragement for Onkkon Art Studio to spread its wings.

She now has a very achievable dream. She plans to open an art & design institute aptly called Alekhya Vidyaniketan. which is a brainchild of Sarbani Chatterjee, who envisioned about a holistic institute where the students will not only attain knowledge but also vocational training that would help them build an economically viable career. Alekhya Vidyaniketan will be built with the concept of Shantiniketan under the guidance of a few eminent passouts. The institute will be a fully equipped collage with state of the art facility where Gurukul tradition will be followed. The idea is to cater to all students willing to learn anything to do with arts and any form or arts. Alekhya means a beautiful painting so likewise it will turn the hopes and dreams into a beautiful reality. Overall, Sarbani dreams of making an economically sustainable livelihood for all which seems a reality now. She loves to work with all so that everyone reaps the benefit. She is trying to make a little difference to the society by contributing the most she can.

Partha Pratim Deb is best known for his unique artworks which bring together pulp, terracotta, glass, as well as discarded household objects, junk and leftover pieces of canvas. As a student of Kala Bhavana in Santiniketan, Partha Pratim Deb drew inspiration from artists such as Nandalal Bose, Benode Behari Mukherjee and K G Subramanyan during his early days. However his later works reveal a clear departure in both vision and method and reveal the influences of the idioms of the post-war artistic developments in the West.
