Born in 1959, with the bold vigorous strokes in his energetic yet sensuous figures reflecting their abandonment & exuberance this magical painter creates a great sense of drama for the viewer, that you can almost hear the lilting strain of the music whether it’s his musicians immersed in 'Alaap', or the geity, rhythm & enthusiasm of the Dancing Women of Gujarat performing Garba, or whether it is his Masked figures concealing their pain while laughing on the world's stage. The rich, subtle & diverse dimension of human reality are explored by with dramatic intensity. Subrata's women are all of these - charming 'adorable, seductive, vulnerable...compassionate... as with great controlled skill he expresses their moods through their eyes, smile & open body language. Each canvass is an excellent blend of technique & feeling as it evokes a nostalgic mood, each element expresses and emotional involvement - such is the charm & magic of his canvasses just as overwhelming is the variety of his work done. Undoubtedly a Master painter he is also a distinguished portrait artist, who paints in a mixed style within the broad expressionist format, standing firmly on the solid technical foundation derived form his training in academic realism. Brushwork ranges form smoothly realistic to the patchy impastos of vibrant expressionist bristles.
