A strong colourist Raza's painting resonate the passionate hot colours of India with all their symbolic, emotive value. While drawing from memories of childhood spent in the forests he has also been inspired by Indian metaphysical thought. Many of his paintings have a dark circular focal point termed the Bindu which. According to him is the fountainhead of both energy and creativity The strong colours and geometric shapes in Raza's paintings have sometimes been mistaken for neo-Tantrik art but according to the artist there is no affiliation with that school. Pre-occupied with imminent energies, he is a modernist involved with the plastic qualities of art and its emergence on the surface. Raza lives and works in Paris and in Gorbio in south France.
