Sudipta's canvases, growing larger in dimension over a period of time, tend to transport the viewer to a sublime mythological space. It feels like being the witness of a mysterious climax frozen in the annals of some secret history of the universe.

Shubhabrata's surreal projections are melting pots of science, logic and eastern worldview of the ancient mystics. Bright colors, at times in their pure form, burst in wild ferocity.

Pratik's horses are dynamic. They are driven by a perpetual passion of jumping out of the canvas! He is a versatile artist whose paintings navigate wide spectrum of ideas and thoughts.

Overall, it is a great ensemble of artworks that leaves the viewers stunned and thinking. The spirit and conviction of these young artists are testimony to the fact that passion is the driver for those who changed the course of art. And this correspondent feels that these four artists will lead the show in the coming days.
