Tapas has acquired a strong academic base in naturalistic style through his art education at Government College of Art and Craft Kolkata. Though talented in academics the beauty and creativity of his paintings rest on how he excels the restriction of naturalism and makes a kind of meditative inwardness to extract the inner essence of the consciousness and personal qualities of the character he depicts. These characters are generally women of urban and rural areas. Perfection of naturalism to a deeper expressionistic value is the crux of his works.
