In Kolkata-based artist Avijit Dutta's personal artistic journey and expression, nature plays a significant role. He notes - "I am immensely attracted to nature and it is a vital part of my work - whether it is flora and fauna, seascape or landscape. Nature is everywhere around us and I like to portray it in my work." Dutta works with a strong metaphorical and visual vocabulary, often using minimalist representations and compositions. His muted palette further refrains from overpowering the ideas and emotions his paintings evoke.
