Biren De started his career as a portrait artist and gradually moved on to figurative works. Eventually his figures were replaced by free floating shapes and forms.

‘Genesis’ was executed when De was fully consumed by the Neo-Tantric ideologies, his vehement use of blue amplifies, the mystery and the magical quality of the union of the Purusha and Prakriti, union of the male and female principles. He delves into the various ways the two can be combined, sometimes adding other fundamental shapes such as the circle or the square to complete the equation.
