Speaking about Asavari’s work, the purpose of art for her is exploration. By immersing herself in the movement of colours, she imbued by the joy and exuberance of unexpected discoveries. Art is a manner of meditation for her; of losing and finding herself in all its hues and intricacies.

Canvas filled with greenery and drenched with monsoon signifies Mousumi Bhattacharyya. She started her colourful journey from tender age and she shaped her passion towards art. Her passion continued, which helped her to chisel skill and accomplish her endeavor towards perfection.

The works of Sawan Taank are characterised by fantasy in a real-world environment. He derives inspirations from poems, stories and folk tales. There is a recurrence of tiger of Jaguar as a protagonist in works because he wants to personify the animal with the male form of beauty.
