"My canvas is the perspective of time, at least, me also.   The contradictions of the society have created alienation in our conscience; my past and present paintings represent my unfulfilled comparisons as an artist.  I bear a sort of complacence as an artist – and that centers on people and me.  Mainly black and white colours dominate my paintings – and I use some other colors with these. With this, I mean our present time is dark.  My paintings portray hand made pottery idols, pottery plates, paper made idols.  Snake and domestic materials.   Since I live in Chittagong, which is the seaport of Bangladesh and flanked with hills, the hills, river, the vast bay of Bengal and the locality create impact on my creative inspiration."
