What is that one thing which is common in this work? Considering the colour, medium, expression, and the object ie.the ‘Bull’, ‘Power’ is the keyword here. The use of black, free and rhythmic strokes, the depth of charcoal and the force of the bull symbolically gives a different ‘High’ to the viewer. The artist has wonderfully controlled the uncontrolled force of the bull. Another thing to be noticed here is how Avijit Roy has intelligently used the background with fast and bold strokes created with his own hand movement to show the 'bull in action' with ‘elan’. This work is the best example when you want to understand how justice to the subject can be given through colours, strokes, and medium.
