His collections are widespread and displayed in various hotels across the country. He likes painting landscapes, expressing in a semi-realistic style using acrylic, soft pastel and ink on canvas.
‘Trees form the major source of my inspiration combined with the various seasons. All trees are symbols of stability there is more to trees than pretty flowers, delicious fruits and relaxing shade. This is a very powerful message, which I try to express through my paintings. I use dark and light shades to bring out the depths of the leaves and to reflect the changing atmospheric conditions.” Shuvankar lives with his family in Kolkata, India.
