Basak’s hunger for originality was prodigious. He experimented with forms, moved away from the canvas to paper to accordion-fold book-like objects to painting on floors, in the traditional style of alpona popular in Hindu households in West Bengal. He absorbed as eagerly from the pata-chitra painters of Bengal as from the European masters of modernism.
Basak had a unique talent to seduced the viewers first with the contours of his paintings — the bright colors, contorted shapes — before letting them into their inner mysteries.

Basak’s hunger for originality was prodigious. He experimented with forms, moved away from the canvas to paper to accordion-fold book-like objects to painting on floors, in the traditional style of alpona popular in Hindu households in West Bengal. He absorbed as eagerly from the pata-chitra painters of Bengal as from the European masters of modernism.
Basak, who was in his early 40s and best known for his powerful paintings and illustrations, in sharp contrast to his characteristic use of bold and robust colours. For his ability to look past the surface into deeper ironic truths, Basak was par excellence. Basak had a unique talent to seduce the viewer first with the contours of his paintings — the bright colours, contorted shapes — before letting them into their inner mysteries.
