A semi-realistic figurative painter, Asit Patnaik’s narratives revolve around the human psyche and the interpersonal relationships of people within society.
There is a certain sensitivity in his works, accentuated by his technique and choice of colours and textures. He captures complex emotions through his semi-clad male and female figures, depicted in varied, open-ended postures.
The deceptive simplicity of his lines adds to the sensuality of the robust figures. There is a sense of mystery as well as visual harmony in his paintings.
