  • Madhu Basu
    Style : The pigment technique is today the essential material of his work. His paintings depict the theme of the pot-which according to a Bengali proverb “contains the universe”- in compositions that lie on the border between abstraction & figuration. Each of his paintings invites to a poetic meditation resulting from the form and the vibrating light of its blacks.
