Amitava, born in Delhi, studied at the Delhi College of Art where he later became a lecturer. He was a founding member of the artists group- New Group. Amitava works in abstract form, but his technique and matrix is very different. Some of his earlier work is in smaller size but more recently he has done large sized paintings. A member of the purchase advisory board for the National Gallery of Modern Art in Delhi, Amitava is also a thinker, writer and designer besides a fine artist. A man of few words, he is a keen reader who finds Rabindranath Tagore\'s poetic as well as visual expression very inspiring. His current work often dwells on juxtaposition of the ‘opposites’ within a common frame. His works feature exquisite textures and is often multi-layered, both in spirit and essence. Amitava\'s works have been widely exhibited throughout India, as well as internationally. He has many solo exhibitions and over one hundred group exhibitions to his credit.
