"For me, painting is a means of getting messages across to people, for connecting with people, for reaching out..."
The Artist work is figurative, and what puts it apart from the works of other contemporary artists from the Bengal School of art, to which he belongs, is its close connection to the political situation in the state of West Bengal. A distinct feature of Bhowmick's work is his manipulation in his rendering of images, which makes living objects appear frozen, and energizes inactive, lifeless elements. The collective effect of this is a sense of silence that pervades through his paintings.
Bhowmick likes to call his art revivalist - rooted in old Indian tradition, yet contemporary. He says, "Urban art is often the expression of lonely, or socially or spiritually uprooted individuals, dispossessed of most of life's stability and with no bindings, except to their creativity. The timeless symbols of the old culture are still meaningful, but they are badly in need of renewal in fresh contemporary forms. And only artists can do so, for they bring back the dead wood of abstraction to life.
