Then he joined Art College Kolkata as a lecturer in 1964.Even though it is abstract, Haloi's works and his motifs have precise associations with the artist's psyche, his experiences and the upheavals that have shaped him and his point of view. He maintains high standards craftsmanship and his construction of tress, houses and the ambience of Kolkata that seems murky with a suppressed strength. Some of his unforgettable work includes nature-scapes painted on rice paper. Haloi has made a significant contribution in building up an abstract trend in contemporary painting by creating a kind of abstract way of depicting nature that goes beyond visual documentation, but conveys the poetry of nature. Ganesh Haloi has won several awards and medals from the Academy of Fine Arts, Kolkata. Please note that this artwork is unframed and will be shipped rolled. From The Great Banyan Art Collection.
