Each artist brings forth a unique perspective, weaving a vivid tapestry of creativity that promises to captivate all who enter.
Arup Kumar Das: Mr. Arup’s work interest has drawn inspiration particularly from freedom, but not limited to the visual area. Architecture also influences his work. The main admiration is architectural inputs in his work. Curvilinear shape/line has always been a critical element in Arup’s work. It is a simplification of many elements relevant to his expression: the feminine curve, an opening, an architectural element, the line that traces a graph or as part of the organic world. The nuances and expressive quality of the curve is explored in printmaking and drawing, and informs all of his work. Arup Das currently teaches in Applied art Dept at Govt. College of Art & Craft, Calcutta.
Arun Paul: Arun Paul got his BVA & MVA degree in Textile Design from Govt. College of Art & Craft, Calcutta, in the year 1997 and 2000. He also teaches there. His works are mostly composed with various forms and colour patches. Motifs and solid type background contrasting the whole construction of his compositions.
Mrinmoy Das: Mrinmoy Das likes to express all things that have to do with fabric. His passion is fabric dyeing, using natural and commercial dyes and also painting, stamping, screen printing, and also his work is fabric quilting, manipulating along with threads and other embellishment that bring life and contrast to the wall hangings. In his journey, Mrinmoy is practicing as Fiber Artist and presently teaching in Textile Design at Govt College of Art & Craft, Calcutta.

The lightness of heavy metal compositionally completes the surroundings.
Partha Protim Gayen: Partha’s works are statements about history & our relation with Mother Nature. The connectivity of society & nature is an important core thing of these creations.
