Sukanta Das’s works are steeped with symbolism mystery. He has the uncanny ability to juxtapose the mundane with exotic. It is only his paintings would one find a classical Indian figure standing nonchalantly in a balcony. As the artist says "I prefer to do realistic paintings with presence of some symbols of our everyday life and sometimes they convey a surrealistic environment." That his works are surreal is beyond doubt, the photo realist treatment of his subjects and the displacement of the figures in non-conformist settings.
Das has also won the national award in 1986. The artist lives and works from Kolkata
