Dilip Chaudhury uses soft lines to create his figures, using shading to both obscure and bring out the necessary details. Highlighting is minimal, and is largely confined to the background, allowing the shadows to give form to the subjects. Judiciously placed splashes of bright colour draws the eye and lets the picture stand out.
The artist lives and works in Kolkata.
