There is a Bengali proverb which says that "All the universe is contained in a pot." Indeed a potter interacts with all five essential elements - earth, water, wind, fire and space. Pots play a central role throughout the stages of a man's life. Pots follow us in our daily life with different aspects independently to mentalities' evolution and science's development. "This universal language, I wanted to express it in my painting as a second meaning after my pictorial work which is essentially about mankind." Madhu Basu,
About his Works
There is a Bengali proverb which says that "All the universe is contained in a pot." Indeed a potter interacts with all five essential elements - earth, water, wind, fire and space. Pots play a central role throughout the stages of a man's life. Pots follow us in our daily life with different aspects independently to mentalities' evolution and science's development. "This universal langage, I wanted to express it in my painting as a second meaning after my picturial work which is essentially about mankind." Madhu Basu, 2001. Madhu Basu's works show a contrasted writing, full of symbolism. Shades and light are omnipresent. Blank spaces are friends with full ones. Lines which structure space are opposed with the round figures in his paintings. Each one of his work is a place for meditation revealing the growing maturaty of the painter.

Suhas Roy’s preoccupation is primarily with the female face and form, and his subjects are romanticised, inhabiting the dreamlike world between sensuality and innocence. His work is usually inspired by life around him, but his themes are as much influenced by the everyday world as they are rooted in fantasy. The vast and complex texture of life is seen as mystical and dark in his work. The mystical flavour of his works arose from his interpretations of the ‘unknown’.

Works in watercolor and especially on ‘ghats of the temples ‘. while in college i did a lots of work in watercolor and acrylic on various topics and techniques ranging from seascape,cityscapes to landscapes. The ‘Ghats of Varanasi’ are unique, tranquil as well as full of energy so i like to depict the ghats of varanasi India. I had been to varanasi many times and almost in every season of year. the changing hues of varansi are so exciting that i experience vivid transformation every second. I found joy in on the spot painting at ghats and has many on the spot works in my collection. the flow and crowd of people is so eloquent that its really fun to depict it. one more thing i noticed the difference that the minds of people wandering on ghats are conquered by the religious thoughts which reflect in their activities and on faces and i love capturing those minds in watercolor and acrylic.
Born in Rewari (India). He references *old persian carpets,* an art form that in modern times is often taken for granted. Reviving these old weavings by tediously painting them on canvas in colors and mediums that were not normally used in their origin.
He uses a traditional method of tempera painting which goes back to the Indian miniature though the material he uses is totally contemporary. Seven to eight coats of transparent colour put on the surface, one after another to get a complete tone. Using a very fine brush Lakhs hatching and stipples are then inserted into the work to give it a grainy texture. Knowledge of the wash technique further enables him to create a soft, twilight effect in his paintings.
His paintings exude a light that emerges from within. His figures are languid and flow gracefully with the overall schema of the natural world that they inhibit. Khan essentially draws his subjects from the wide base of Indian mythology, religion and folk lore. His eye for details and commendable mastery of line make his style unique.
Venkat Bothsa did his B.F.A from Andhra University followed by M.F.A from Banaras Hindu University. His brightly coloured fulsome figuration inlayed with busy embellishments of all kinds and forms- may be taken from natural elements or sourced from media and photographs such as cityscapes or the advertising world or Bollywood or technological gadgets or even scenes from abroad, appear familiar and fun filled on a first glance but somewhat strange and surrealist on a closer study. His larger-than-life exuberant dramatic sculptures in fiberglass come in a mix of mythology and cinematic reverie. His artistic career includes working in different tribal art and life museums for the Andhra Government as well as hundreds of sculptures and installations that he has created on commission for public and private collections across the State and beyond.
