Pradeep L. Mishra's work deals primarily with the essence of 'being' that is present in what is living and what is non-living. It concerns the relations built through similarities as well as our curiosity to know, touch, feel, smell our fellow beings. Mishra paints the most ordinary creatures in blood red adding to the resistance of his subjects and content.
Mishra's work is affected by the extinction of forests and its occupants (both animals and human beings) and reconsiders a balance between our natural and built heritage. "I work to feel the breath of life. Other beings appear and enter in relation to the space within which we all live in."
