Ever since childhood, artist Nabaraj Roy has been greatly attracted to the aesthetic diversity of forms found in nature. It is this diversity that drives him to create new shapes and forms. The contradictions emerging from the scenes, time, forms, and structures of urban and rural dwellings have had a deep-rooted impact on his mind.

Alongside these, the changes in time and culture have left deep impressions as well. When new shapes and forms are created spontaneously in this world of images today, they all contribute to expanding his thought. These are the forms that keep on returning to his canvas. Through these, he creates his art, his symphony! With his creations inspired by folk forms, urbanization, and nature,

Roy's works have captivated audiences with their unique perspective. This exhibition promises an immersive showcase of young artist Nabaraj Roy's artistic evolution, offering spectators a chance to engage with his distinctive interpretations of the world.

Among his distinguished recognitions are the 2020 SM Sultan Foundation Award and the 2019 Special Award from the Mount Fuji Painting Exhibition in Bangladesh.
