Das’ style of work is very original and shows no specific influence. He had risen to fame like MF Hussain with his famous paintings of horses, to the extent that he was nicknamed ‘Ghora Das’ ( Hindi which means Horse Das) Like Hussain, Das was inspired by the force and strength of the moving horse. The horses and the bull ( inspired from his visit to Spain and witnessing the Bull Fighting ) have appeared more than 7000 times in Das’s works. Whatever medium Das worked on, he effortlessly mastered. Not one to be stuck to one style, Das experimented and worked on various series and mediums. His works involve the quick use of the brush and pen to create masterpieces that have a dynamic effect, potent with power.
