The artists present here are mostly senior painters who have already established themselves at national level. Amidst them was a Tanu P. Khandual at his early 20’s and final year student of Fine Arts at Vishwa Bharati University, who says “for any artist appreciation is more than praise, unfortunately our society is yet to change the mindset towards them who are into creative field”. He has already been awarded with national level work and has participated in many national and international level workshops. “I want to take painting as my fulltime profession after I finish my Masters this May, as I have been painting since my school days” adds Khanduwal.

In the initial period it will be difficult to establish yourself, but gradually you have possibility for achievement” adds Panchanan Samal who practices Semi realistic and abstract from of art. The work of the artist present will be taken by the Lalit Academy, who has funded the workshop as well as artist expenditure. The academy also grants financial honorary to the artists.
