The art work of Niren Sen Gupta is an assortment of works from his 40 years of artistic career where he has collated one of two works from every year on an average. The collection comprises his early works, paintings never seen by anyone and paintings he wanted to keep with himself like the collage and pen and ink drawing done in 1983 in the memory of his mother and different series done by him through his career like ‘Touch’, ‘Angel’, ‘Princess’ and ‘Moksha’ reflected it rather well.

While speaking about his art work, Veteran Artist, Prof Niren Sen Gupta said, Indian art essentially depicts the universe in all its abundance and multiplicity of life and form. It emphasizes the potential of an individual to grow spiritually. Every painting is related to something I experienced at that time,” says pointing at the ‘Angel’ series — dense pen and ink drawings depicting small innocent boys wearing poignant expressions. It was borne out of the trauma of 1971 partition. “I was born in what is now Bangladesh. I saw hordes and hordes of refugees at Sealdah and Howrah station which left me really disturbed. These refugees became angels in these works.”

However, other artist Prince Chand in his art work follows the logic of Indian aesthetic (Rasa, Bhava, Symmetry, Ornamentation, Philosophical, as well as the Indic image making techniques. His works are thus a convincing continuation of the forgoing vigorous art forms. After an intuitive as well as intellective grasping of the high points of temple art styles as of rock or cave patterns, he has sought to transform them into contemporary or modern forms. In this way he has utilized ancient motifs in fresh contemporary incarnation.
