From Bishnupur ,West Bengal, a town of terracotta temples. His entry as a student of Fine Arts into Santiniketan,in the 1987 gave him an opportunity to explore his inner expressions into various forms of art. In his works the interplay of texture on rough of canvas ground, reflects the present day's Complexity of human relationships, that could be so simple and easy ,yet is an effort, an attempt and a struggle to hold on tight, for fear of losing and letting go. He has many exhibitions and camps to his credit and his works are in the collection of the Birla Academy and many individuals.
