Artist Avijit Roy diversified portfolio of work comprises beast-based drawings and the paper on canvases couched cases of knives or rows of them framed or scrolled. The artist’s initial works included many images of the mammoth black bull in its many manifestations. He experimented with Chine Colle, a simple technique in which subtle color and the textural contrast between rice paper and the base paper are highlighted, and this technique is increasingly seen in his rendering of the Buddha. Avijit Roy’s ‘bull’ indeed charges with immense energy expressed through free strokes in black of white. Wounds though an inherent element of the bullfighting, the bulls appear to rise above its misfortune without ado. In other words, the elan of the bull is projected by the artist wherein there’s a message for the viewer. So these particular offerings affect us, quite as the artist's other works do. It complements the artist's sculptures. This medium, in his hands, carries the same conviction. Avijit Roy is purposive, not a dilettante artist. By design the above noted works are not dainty, but fibrous. In fact, the artist's diversified portfolio of work comprises not only the beast-based drawings but also the redoubtable athletic sculptures at moment almost levitating, and the paper on canvases couched cases of knives or rows of them framed or scrolled.
