Nirupam Das Watercolor Painting   Our second featured IBM Creative is Nirupam Das, a Database Administrator in Kolkata, India.  Nirupam likes to paint in watercolor during his free time.  He has been painting since his school days, and first became interested in painting at that time as he discovered that he had a passion for playing with color.  He chose watercolor as his medium because it’s easily available, and he likes to paint landscapes and scenery.  His painting style is primarily realistic, and the message he tries to convey in his work is to be oneself and fulfill your dream.  He is inspired by various artists, but one artist in particular that he admires is Nandalal Bose, a notable painter of the Bengal school of art whose paintings have been declared as ‘art treasures’ by the Government of India.  Nirupam finds time to paint during the weekends and holidays, and, as for future plans, he hopes to arrange an exhibition of his art in the future.  The main advice he would pass along to other IBM Creatives is this – ‘beside your daily office job, take some time out and brush up your own talent’.

Thanks Nirupam for being our second featured IBM Creative!

Our first featured IBM Creative is Mike Barnhouse, an IBM Project Manager in Winnsboro, Texas. In his spare time, Mike has created a comic strip called Small Town Tom, which is now syndicated in 74 newspapers and has a readership of more than 400,000. Mike was actually interviewed by one of the newspapers that runs his comic, and you can listen to that interview here.

To learn more about Mike and his comic creative pursuit, check out the video and links below:
