Sakti Burman was born in Calcutta, India in 1935. He studied art in Calcutta and Paris, but from the mid-'50s, began living in Paris. Mr. Burman exhibits internationally and is a renowned painter, sculptor, and lithographer. He creates dreamscapes based on Hindu and other mythology, and from his own imagination. His works often evoke the textured works of aging Italian frescoes. He lives in Paris with his wife Maïté Delteil, and his daughter, Maya Burman, who are both talented artists in their own right.
