The scale of his work draws inspiration from his having been involved with a number of museums. He was the keeper Arts of the President’s museum. Then, he worked at the Zakkir Hussain museum at Jamia and at Lucknow Residency, apart form the National Museum. Indeed, his interaction with museums has given his present works their grandeur. His figures have the dignity and stance of Gupta sculpture, but they are contemporary peasants and working people, often carrying the instruments of their trade, like brooms in their hands. They are the icons of our age, neither titillating nor gimmicky, but executed in a masterly fashion. They remind us that today India still produces well executed art worthy of standing up to the test of time and being shown in public spaces which has become a rarity in a world of art freely using gimmickry and assembling mass produced goods.

The palette of his canvases retains the simplicity of the miniature but the tonality he works up is contemporary. Many of his works today have a monochromatic look, but on closer inspection reveal a layered evolution of different colours blending as one. His figures too, make full use of India’s narrative tradition of body language and gesture, while not losing their iconic quality.
