A self-taught artist with a background in structural engineering, Arnab Basu has established a distinct style of his own that is the hallmark of all true artists. The meditative ambience created with earthy colours draws the viewer into the heart and soul of his paintings.
Emerging from the twilight borders between waking and dreaming , each work creates a world where the real and unreal fuse together in liquid harmony.
A much-travelled artist, Arnab’s works reflect the entire spectrum of influence ranging from Oriental tribal motifs to European surrealism.
His “abstract figurative” works contain elements which are disintegrated and then reconstructed in an unique way, juxtaposed upon one another to give an overall three dimensional effect. The motifs are primarily degenerated and then fused together in a fluid harmony, producing a rich texture. Oil paint has been placed in thin transparent layers one upon the other, creating a mystic “cosmic bubble effect”.
