Hi! I am Arunava Basak. I am an Artist and designer from India. I work as a full time UX Designer and a fine artist who takes interest in portraiture and figurative art.

I have been in an explorative state in terms of art and enjoy them in each of their unique form. One form that has stuck with time for me is portraits and figurative art due to its close connection to people. It helps me connect to my inner self and also help me understand others better.
I have been making portraits for quite some time mostly in graphite and charcoal. Quite recently I started painting and I love the adventure!

Basak's work brings every expression/part on the picture to life. He is such a clever and a dedicated artist. I would have a house full of his paintings if I could.

Design is not Art. It is a form of problem solving that goes unnoticed when done well. That's the beauty of it.
I have luckily found UX design as my Ikigai and it has constantly helped me with challenging myself to solve diverse set of problems which exist in real life. Click "Know more" to get a gist.
