Dilip Chaudhury from Bengal has metamorphosed into a sought- after artist with a niche skill of creating above all, subjects of abundant beauty and character with a strong sense of perspective, his favourite subject being the humble rickshaw puller of Kolkata. He’s portrayed as a symbol of courage, facing adversity with hard labour and a stoic grace. A touch of red symbolizes optimism in his truly riveting canvases, each of which has a unique story to narrate. They are not flat but have grandeur, movement, people and therefore, life infused into them.
