Alok Bal

Alok Bal was born in Orissa in 1969. After completing his B.Com in 1989, he did his BFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University of Baroda in 1998 and his Post Diploma in Painting, also from the Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University of Baroda in 2001. In 1998, he won the National Scholarship from the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

The artist has held many solo exhibitions and has been part of several group shows in India and abroad. His works have also been displayed at international art fairs such as Mumbai Art Expo in 2009 and the Contemporary Asian Art fair in Singapore in 2007.

Alok Bal is concerned with the environment and this is reflected in his works. Unrestrained urban growth and man's instinct to control and manipulate natural resources has resulted in irreversible changes in ecology. His metropolis glows with beacons of light that lure the multitudes, but then as reality reveals itself causes disillusionment and cynicism.

The artist lives and works in Baroda.
