Jiten was born in Assam in 1936. His innate artistic talents were apparent in childhood. Jiten has accumulated a deep and abiding knowledge of philosophy and Sanskrit literature and this is reflected in his painting, as are his boyhood memories of day-to-day life in rural Assam.

“I have possibilities, I know, but under which stone they lie buried I do not know,” said Albert Camus. But it appears Jiten was able to find the stone overlaying his particular possibilities even as a child. An unspoilt freshness and a moving simplicity are the hallmarks of his work. Aristotle said: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an art but a habit.” Jiten concurs wholeheartedly. He would find slipshod and mindless effort enervating, he feels, given his habitual diligence and attention to detail, attested to by the minutiae woven into the magnificent Oriental rug that is his work.


His is a highly individualistic interpretation of our visual reality. Jiten's paintings may be broadly categorized as Figurative Abstract. In Jiten’s work, seemingly divergent Realism and Abstraction converge to a brilliant point. For Jiten, the subject matter of a painting is subsidiary since he believes in ‘art for art’s sake’ and revels in the sheer joy of creation. He is concerned mostly with eye-catching rhythms, vibrant colour harmonies, and arresting spatial configurations: products of his fertile imagination. He is an intrepid artist essaying oils on canvas with assiduousness and intelligence. His works make for an anthology of blank verses in colour.

    I was able to get a piece each of Mithun Dutta, Anupam Paul & Jiten Hazarika from Mojarto. They look apt on my walls. Looking forward to enjoy some new collection of pieces. But unfortunately I am handicapped for wall space. - Manmohan
