Handsome and beautiful – the lasya and the tandava or the yin and yang form the core of Nityam Singha Roy Paintings series. The mood is that of Shringar rasa of love. His figures are lyrical in colours that are rooted in the soil but almost ethereal in their essential mood. Entrenched in the myths and folklore of Indian mythology that he imbibed through the stories recounted by his mother in childhood, led him to create his own fantasy world.
Frequently the human forms in Nityam Singha Roy’s paintings are Radha, Krishna and Meera, often together in shringar rasa or love as the primary mood and timeless in appeal.
