Kolkata - a word woven with mystery. A city with as many unique interpretations as its people and there's one more Kolkata which comes to us through stories– the yesteryear’s Kolkata. A city, where one could take a tram ride with mere 2 paisa. All these slowly losing and are the core of Arup's paintings; his creations I often feel nostalgic. These works depict various moods of old Kolkata; sometimes the misty winter morning or sometimes the bright sunny day or sometimes water soaked rainy afternoon or sometimes simply the dawn. Or recreate the magic of enjoying a horse carriage ride on an empty road in front of Victoria or the sheer joy of seeing a tram from far on a winter morning or simply witnessing a rickshaw puller who is rushing to start his day or sometimes on the contrary returning of a man-pulled rickshaw puller at dawn after a long, tiring day.
