Gautam Mukherjee is a very sensitive artist, he is sensitive towards his subjects, which are mainly revolve around his family. They are not portraits of his family members but are rathre representation of the values a family holds for him. Recently with the birth of his child the works capture the love and bonding that a child brings into a family.
Over a period of time Mukherjee's style has evolved , the colours have brightened , the characters in his works have acquired a cheerful note from the earlier works which more sombre. But the 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.
