Artist's Statement :

The subject matter of my picture is the expression of some ideas, events, experiences, memoirs and some reluctance about me and the environment around me. But I mostly love to draw pictures of the joys, festivals, ceremonies, and various pleasant experiences of our life and our society. I also love to draw various mythological characters and stories.The purpose and motivation of my work is to feel, hold or reminisce about the happy favourite experiences and feelings that I am deprived of due to epidemics or other reasons. Nowadays, I prefer to draw mainly Indian art and folk-art forms, various types of paintings, miniature paintings, relief sculptures on various terracotta temples, etc., which I see in my country. I am very attracted to them. I grew up seeing this kind of art around me from a young age and later I practiced this kind of art style for professional reasons or personal interest. When I came to study in Santiniketan again, I was greatly influenced by the various artists and art forms here. I have read about Mastermashai Nandalal Basu, who is also influenced by the entire Indian art form. So naturally I also got inspired by him. I think the content of my paintings is appropriately expressed through these types of artistic features. This is why I feel comfortable drawing in this style.
