Brief Description Jatin Das believes that every element of life has an inherent energy. This energy is evident in his paintings of men and women, captured in the throes of emotional upheaval, portraying the plethora of emotions evoked as a result of the interaction of people with society and nature. Rhythmic discontinuities of colour planes and rushing lines characterize his paintings. Jatin focuses on drawing out the subtleties of thought and feeling through the use of colour. In particular, it was his paintings of nude or 'bare figure' forms that brought him acclaim in the 1960s and 70s.
