Sensitive and full of color, Sujata Achrekar's paintings are a reflection of her mind. She is able to convey the misery and the helplessness of humans trapped by circumstances, from which there is no escape. The unusual textual quality of her work is due to the skilful handling of colour and theme. These form a basis for her to portray the myriad moods and lives of the working class. Most of her creations are restricted to a single figure that occupies the centrestage. It is in her treatment of these that she gives individuality to the canvases. Sujata Achrekar blends figures and the abstract, and then proceeds to distort them to get her message across. Depicting the pain that is an inseparable part of human destiny, Achrekar's works have a pervasive atmosphere of melancholy.

Sujata Achrekar graduated from the Raheja School of Art, Mumbai, in 1992. She currently teaches at the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai.
