Mishra’s art is dominated by images of women. Dark, black, rural females have kept appearing on his canvas from a very early age.
He has often traveled to the tribal areas of Bastar and Santhal, simply to get glimpses of their raw beauty, for their mystery, power,
sensuality and distress agitate him. He believes that they may not be as glamorous as the city models, but they carry a deeper,
more profound power of seduction. Once agitated, the treatment and themes then come spontaneously from within him, evoking the
sensuality of the female form with just a few brushstrokes.
