Manoj Dutta’s painting reflects hopes and aspirations, life and society, our political and religious preoccupations and everything that happens around us. His painting draws its strength from the impacts on his mind of events in the city life. There are pronounced elements of folk art in his painting. Folk form and feel come to his painting naturally. He try to achieve the same simplicity and directness in his work. The patterned precision and polished delicacy of Manoj Dutta's infinitely appealing visuals, contradict the fact that he has received no formal training in art.
