He has also exhibited at India Art Fair, 2020. He is interested in site-specific works. To him, coal mines are very interesting landscapes, unlike other landscapes, in mines, the continuous shifting and changing are happening in different layers within the earth and it is caused more by humans than nature. These man-made impressions left behind on this landscape create an ever-changing interplay of positive and negative spaces. He has tried to depict this phenomenon in his works by dividing a given space in black and white. He lives and works in Santiniketan.
