Subir draws inspiration from folk as well as urban art. We are familiar with folk art but 'urban art' is still a developing area, it includes anything and everything, from a street lamp to a commercial hoarding, a futuristic building or even political graffiti being used as art to make a statement / deliver a message to the viewer. He makes an effort to transcreate the folk art form, adding to it principles of design art with urban tutelage.
