I am a contemporary artist from Kolkata. The subject of my work is not limited to one thing and it varies from time to time. Topics of my work consists of War,
Industrial revolution, Cruelty, Emotions, Coming of age, Issues relating to third gender, Recalling history, Population, Globalisation, Human relationship,
Positive and negative side of religion and untold emotions of myself.

These topics makes me think and the thoughts added with my feeling and creativity is expressed in my paintings. The approach of my artwork is realistic and
semi-realistic and Indianness is clearly visible.

I love observing the positive and negative aspects of our society and through my paintings I aim to promote dialogue and learning about the critical issues
still existing in our society that are in need to be changed. I try to convey a contemporary language through my paintings.

Most of my work are done in water colour on paper, acrylic, Charcoal, pen on ink, burning paper, rice paper.

My artwork 'HIJACKED' depicts that earlier time everything used to be done manually, and this process had a good effect on nature and its entities.
For example, when our mother and grandmother used to grind wheat in stone grinder some of the wheat would fall out and would have been strewn all over.
These scattered grains would invite birds and other beautiful creation of nature close to us. The left out grain gave birth to new seedlings. This cycle
continued over and over.Then we had Industrial Revolution and the machines took over. Productivity reached 100% and that too at a click of a button. More and more household started
using machines for their daily work. Now there is no waste of food grain and we keep everything to us and us only.Yes, we have come a far away and evolved very much but left our mother nature and its beautiful creations behind.
