||To fully appreciate his work, one will have to know the leading
thread of the whole and penetrate into the philosophy on which it
is based and grows with the line of Indian tradition. A central

fixed and serenely poised of the un-manifested around which other
forms of the manifested fold and unfold.
"I was interested in having man and universe together. I like
blue the most but I also have lazing reds oscillate between the
two. Red is outside, it is raw, it is everything. The struggle of
the ancient and modern was being clearly revealed in Biren De's
dilemma by the early 70's. While not an expressly philosophical
artist, De's paintings paid a welcome contribution towards the
Neo-Tantric movement of the 70's.
