Artist Avijit Roy diversified portfolio of work comprises beast-based drawings and the paper on canvases couched cases of knives or rows of them framed or scrolled. The artist’s initial works included many images of the mammoth black bull in its many manifestations. He experimented with Chine Colle, a simple technique in which subtle color and the textural contrast between rice paper and the base paper are highlighted, and this technique is increasingly seen in his rendering of the Buddha.

Born in 1962 in West Bengal, Avijit Roy did his V.A.F.A. from Rabindrabharati University in West Bengal. He further did a post Diploma in Graphic Design from the Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University in Baroda.

Avijit Roy’s ‘bull’ indeed charges with immense energy expressed through free strokes in black of white. Wounds though an inherent element of the bullfighting, the bulls appear to rise above its misfortune without ado. In other words, the elan of the bull is projected by the artist wherein there’s a message for the viewer. So these particular offerings affect us, quite as the artist's other works do. It complements the artist's sculptures. This medium, in his hands, carries the same conviction.

Avijit Roy is purposive, not a dilettante artist. By design the above noted works are not dainty, but fibrous. In fact, the artist's diversified portfolio of work comprises not only the beast-based drawings but also the redoubtable athletic sculptures at moment almost levitating, and the paper on canvases couched cases of knives or rows of them framed or scrolled. The talented artist is not averse to experimentation and has combined with a fashion designer to do his bull series for their menswear.

His 'knife' series comprises the works on paper and canvas. If one closely looks at the works, these are not sophisticated sitting room ornamentation but nor are they sharp implements! Here the artist is seen turning swords back into ploughshares. The very softness, as the mellow coloration of each of these knives is an avowal: to shed the hardness of the heart.

In a sense the knives are equally hard as bull and muscled man, but this time by virtue of their empathy and communion with their fellows. So orchestral is their sound of harmony. The visual pleasure in these is enhanced by their stance of femininity. The knives are defenseless, outwardly, but yet still really making a firm, silent evocation for peace.

There is also the series on the Buddha, at moments on a fabric simulated base that the artist has worked on is certainly ornamental, rich in textural effects. But such delight is in order, not impure, and it is felt not a put on act.
