“Dark truth” by Shuvra Biswas using Catchphrase “Life unmasked/বে-আব্রু জীবন”
” Absolutely well done artwork that touches upon a very important theme. It reflects not only the catch-phrase but also the grim reality. Farmers put laborious work into producing food with little or no benefit to themselves. The artist has used items that are identifiably “city-food” which makes the contrast even more stark. Commendable skill – composition, colour, light and form are all excellently done.”-JURY

“Tedious” by Dipshikha Biswas using Catchphrase “On-line class/অন-লাইন ক্লাস “
” Nice portrayal of the catchphrase. The artist seems to be adept in using colour. However graphic lines and perspective control still have room for improvement. The artist is advised to explore the digital medium more. The background seems to be done with a image-based texture and might have benefitted from the use of hand rendering like the rest of the image.”- JURY

“The artist’s style bears resemblance to the stylized drawings of Djamila Knopf. Indeed a commendable job and the painting do reflect the transcendence embedded in the catchphrase. Very good in terms of both skill and concept. Observing and drawing what one sees around could be an excellent way to take the ideas further..”-JURY for REJUVENATE

“Vincent’s” by Sagarika Pattanayak using No Catchphrase.
