He is currently showcasing his works along with other artists like Subrata Sen, Subodh Poddar, B Kumaraswamy and others at a gallery in Goregaon. CS caught up with him:
I love painting Lord Ganesha and Radha Krishna. Both these Gods are very relatable. I am not a religious person, and my artworks don’t showcase them in a religious light. Everyone can relate to Radha Krishna’s love story. So as an artist, painting Lord Ganesha and Radha Krishna is an interesting experience as you can play with emotions.
Age no bar
I am still very motivated towards my work, and life in general. I travel, go for daily walks and also write columns for a Bengali newspaper. Age is only in the mind. I paint whenever I am in the mood to paint. That works best for me.
On my palette
Bright colours are my favourite. I love all shades of red. You will also see a lot of blue in my paintings. The colour also reflects a lot of emotion. When I was younger, I used a lot of black. That has changed now.
