About Christian Sarkar

I started painting in early childhood with a circle of close friends in India. My formal – it that’s the word  – art studies began at the University of Houston in the 1980s where I took both a stone-lithography and an intaglio class with Malinda Beeman.


I spent my formative years in New Delhi, India – before moving to the U.S. in 1980. Over the years I have lived in three continents.  I’m involved with the following activist projects:

My past work has been described as abstract activism –  an extension of my interest in social justice, sustainability, inclusivity, as well as revolutionary music, history and literature.

All art is political, especially when it is not. I’ve also been categorized as an altermodernist – which is alright by me. Learn more:

I’m a founding member of the Art4Justice collective, an underground art group in Texas.
