Nitai’s paintings are spontaneous and consistent. In each of his paintings there is a lively movement. They reflect a unity in diversity, hence not monotonous but harmonious. The various figure forms, style, colour combination etc., is his own chemistry. They are free from academics. As an artist his basic aim is a create a bridge between our spiritual past, rich cultural heritage on the one side and the modern day materialistic world on the other side, and through this link he likes the viewers to focus on the unknown future. In short he says that Philosophy is called “view of life” and Religion is described as a “way of life - an art of living”. Through his creations Nitai attempts a wedding of these two aspects of life as perfectly as possible. For this, Nitai adopts; various folk art concepts of different region and country and uses them at ease in his own style with figure drawings, colour combinations, sometimes simple pencil sketch etc., without disturbing the essential nature or the fundamental aspects of the various folk styles he adopts.

Nitai adopts a unique style in his paintings and sculptural work. They are essentially multi-dimensional; hence most of his paintings are “untitled”. He urges the viewers to think. His art reflects folk themes with contemporary styles. He very sweetly punches mythological themes and various gods and deities in his paintings in the midst of progressive dilemma in the age of modern scientific discoveries. Put together all these, he is a thinking man and urges others to think along his thinking web. The colour combination used by him though very bright but produces a radiation of sublimity, peace and calmness fully justifying the inner essence of his thoughts.

Like various rivers with their different names and forms having their distinct inherent properties and textures flow through the numerous mountainous routes and through the plains to finally merge into the ocean to become ONE - the oceanic beauty, so too all the folk-arts in their respective themes and styles merges in Nitai’s style of paintings and sculptural work - a Nitai Beauty.


The colour scheme is the backbone of any painting. Application of colour with figure drawing indicates the quality and expertise of an Artist, Nitai says. To the extent the viewers are able to feel, follow and appreciate the artist’s inner voice, to that extent the painting and the painter is successful. From this point of view Nitai Das is a successful artist.
