About the artist and his Work Style : Basu, is a self taught artist. His penchant for art inspired him to paint regularly through his entire childhood. As his passion for painting continued very strongly into his adulthood; Basu metamorphosed into a professional artist. Apart from painting all through his childhood, Basu actually started painting professionally in the last 8 years. Debabrata introspects to paint. Insecurity of being a professional artist ,fears of uncertainty, stringent financial condition, struggles and anxiety of an artist until one makes it and gains recognition and success and the tough life led by the young artist community are all depicted in his paintings .
Basu has a fantastic command over the brush for someone so young and with no formal education. His paintings help him vent his emotions on the canvas . He feels all the struggles and challenges in life cannot be controlled. In his ‘Underwater Series’ he depicts a Blue male figure in blue seas in a free fall . Speaks for everyone facing challenges. Having no control over them he urges them to simply let go . Expressing this beautifully in his canvas as a male figure drops himself in the water.
