    Style :
    Majority of Sanat Kar's works are surrealistic and have a curious dream-like appearance.Figures are distorted and barely recognisable.The same treatment is given to objects. As a result, all his paintings hover on the edge of reality without ever actually reaching there, symbolising the mysteries of life to which there are no answers.
    His paintings are an eloquent testimony to his talent and artistic powers. He uses the medium of tempera most often in his work.
