My name is Amit Nayek and I was born in 1978 in Howrah, West Bengal. I am fascinated by my surroundings. I enjoy observing people of modest backgrounds go through their daily routines. Moreover, the architecture of Howrah is another aspect of life that is dismissed by many. I want to bring viewers’ attention to the common elements of daily life through uncommon composition of colours in my paintings.

I draw with the intention to draw attention to the myriad facets of the world. We tend to take the poor rickshaw-wallah, the humble fruit seller, etc. for granted. We do not pay attention to them; what they are wearing, how they put up their stalls each day, what they go through, and many such questions. I like to make these people the protagonists of my paintings.
