Bijoy Basak believes his canvas is a space where limits are transcended and emotions are actualised. In his paintings, he fuses the world around him with his feelings and depicts things as he perceives them. His paintings are a mix of reality and fantasy using soft lines and textures by applying colours in multiple layers.
"The artist in me is stirred by the little insignificants and the drama of the everyday. The artist in the journey of daily life must engage in relationships and activities that form the trivia of his existence. My works engage in conversations with these. However trivial they appear, they leave their imprints on the memory and each day becomes a significant date, even if only on the personal calendar."
