Artist, Organizer, Teacher, Social Activist
"Shuva, a people’s person, is a man of many parts – artist, organizer, teacher and social activist. Ever ready to help others and take up new challenges, he is a prominent intellectual and an active player in Bengal’s cultural and socio-political movements. …A fatherly figure on the contemporary Indian art circuit, he is hard working and determined, brimming with ideas and energy."
Bengalee by Passion
"To Shuvaprasanna complete abstraction is too artificial, too 'lifeless', too wide away from the direct approach of human relations in a city like Calcutta. On the other hand, he is naturally not a photographer who portrays the reality. But Shuvaprasanna reduces; he therefore abstracts gradually. His presentation of reality often has dream-like elements in it. But does not the dream often show a deeper view of reality? "
"...in spite of all universality of the assessment Shuvaprasanna is not simply 'westernized'. Just on the contrary: he is an Indian by conviction, a Bengalee by passion and a Calcuttan out of his love for the city."
