Swapnesh Choudhury's Art refreshes our thoughts positively, whenever we stand in front
of his paintings. He brings out the real beauty of his subjects very effectively which is
nothing but a reflection of his own inner self, which is ever green and always positively
charged. Perhaps his paintings are a classic case of the famous saying "A thing of Beauty is
Joy for ever" !
