The beast within! That is the thought that comes to mind when one is confronted with H.R. Das’s bulls. There is an empathy that he evokes in the viewer when faced with his canvases. They exude the power, pride and heart of the beast that is a part of us all.
While some artists tend to overlook the background, treating it as a mere support for their central theme; H.R. Das, treats it like a stage setting in front of which his characters perform. They may recede and be dismissed as props, but his backgrounds still command attention, the intricate tapestry effect and mute lines provide a vibrant milieu that serve to highlight the interactions between the main players of his magnum opus.
