Gautam Mukherjii is a very sensitive artist, and sensitive towards his subjects, which mainly revolve around his family. They are not portraits of his family members but are rather representation of the values a family holds for him. The artist's style has evolved over a period of time, the colors have become more vibrant, cheerful and brightened. The characters in his works have acquired a cheerful note fromthe earlier sombre tone. But the artist's focus has always been the family, with emphasis on the close bonding between them, shown by the physical contact with each other, be it husband - wife, mother-child, grandparent-grandchild or between siblings. The attention to composition, background, detailing of the people, in traditional Bengali attire and jewellery in an environment that is reminiscent of the old Kolkata havelis. All enhanced by the deep and rich hues of color.
