maria pestana art gallery online intends to provide a commercial launch of the art works of selected international artists. Our intention is to promote young artists and less well known artists who have been chosen for their technical skills, personality or creative imagination. Also among our compromises is to present the artist to international competitions and prizes.

We offer to collectors personal consultancy services to assist them in developing their collections according to their special interests or in exploring new branches of contemporary art to begin collecting. In addition we firmly believe in promoting the excitement, pleasure and fascination of collecting art to a new generation of collectors and thus we offer advice and guidance all aspects of how to start, build and develop an art collection.

Aloke Paul (India)


devine melody

A character, often a female, is playing some musical instrument. When we look closer, we perceive that the musical instrument is part of the body as if the musical instrument was a prolongation of the body. Body and musical instruments appear to be in search of a colourful melody, often geometric, but always full of colour. Aloke Paul means to represent, not just characters, but the idea that music is part of the human being. To represent this almost mystic search, Aloke Paul gives way to a vibrant palette, full of melodic notes.



Aloke Paul (1977) has studied Arts in India and has widely exhibited around the world.


“I believe that musical wave can make the world united. There is an inherent inclination towards melody in every human being. Consciously or unconsciously, people do things in some particular harmony. I have found that through the wonderful and unique synchronization of minds and thoughts, musical breeze is created in every moment of our lives. I believe that life is a composition of different modes. The resonances of life convey rhythms which has its own beauty. I have tried to capture this expression of life, which is full of musical vibrations, in my paintings. I have portrayed our body as instruments which generate unlimited beats and tunes. The images of these instruments, though known to us, have its uncommon and exceptional look. The exclusive expressions of these instruments have given a modern dimension in my paintings. I have tried to reveal the feelings of human beings, which has its own profound melodic effect, through several faces and gestures. I feel birth of different ‘raga’, through the instrument- like- bodies, surrounds our lives and thus the life is so effervescent.” (Aloke Paul, 2011)
