Karjee is the recipient of several awards and grants such as the Indian Artist Relief Fund (2021), 129th All India Annual Art Exhibition Award, The Bombay Art Society (2021) among others. Karjee’s sculptural practice in figuration is drawn from observations. Karjee believes that the human body is a container of memories, feelings and aspirations. As an artist, he looks for the self in others while locating others in spaces that are simultaneously personal and social. Born from a keen awareness within the artist, Karjee’s works try to emulate a creative visual narrative around the experience of growing up in suburban Kolkata. His practice draws on the imagery of a child, emphasising the importance of childhood in our lives
