His configurations are sometimes linear (geometrical) and some times lyrical, depending on the theme or the subject he is handling. But they are sensitive all the same.

His artworks depicts a gamut of human emotions to observe and relish.
The character and the themes may vary, but not the sensitive approach to image-creating which is the life and lure of artist’s canvas. However, it may be mentioned here that there is no attempt to overdo things on the part of artist. A certain sensitivity to structuring is also visible in Bijan Paul’s works.

That too on the bases of merit alone. Indeed, he has that daring spirit in him that could crash through the barriers and have his way. In some places he has exhibited along with his fellow artists and other times solo, in the western art galleries.
