There is a fantastic element in the works which is brought about by transforming the motifs of a fish, kite, an animal etc into larger than life forms. It is needless to say that all motifs are selected by the artist and are composed in such a manner so that the sculptural presence of each form gets enhanced.
The motive of a child in its most basic form appears quite repeatedly in the works of Subrata Biswas. The elementary human form representing the child complements innocence, one generally associated with a child. But artistically, what is more interesting is how the sculptor made the simplistic form emerge by reconciling elements of both folk and classical form. It is more of a language than a style in which Subrata creates his narratives with the child and accessories associated with the child.
