Although figurative in style, Anjan has chosen a less popular, tougher medium of Tempera, on canvas or board, in which he uses naturally ground vegetable pigments & combines them with a paste from the babool tree to use as a binder. This technique results in a superb finish, which is matt & refined, & the longevity even in humid conditions, phenomenal.

Anjan has been trained in the school of Indian Painting ,& inspired by Indian miniature paintings, which is reflected in his use of flat colours & clever use of negative & positive space, vis a vis the Western school of painting, which relies more on bringing its subjects to life thorough light, shade & perspective.There is a tendency to give a rich network of intricate patterns symbolizing the labyrinth of the character's thought process & inner beauty or turmoil, as the case may be.

Anjan's subjects are a statement on society, reflected through facial expressions & body language of his characters.Sometimes, it is a comment on poverty, other times it's old age & at others,a satire on the wealthy. It is that particular moment which counts, in a language all his own.
