"His current work has become more, or one could say, less geometric, far more colorful with a clear bright palette and greater sophistication in choices, and so musical, how much a parallel to jazz or Phillip Glass I would let others say. The simplicity of his forms has given way to a greater complexity but the fundamental structure of his work, the terms he selects for himself, is always quite explicit. Clearly, a greater momentum and confidence is evident." - Robert Lee, Director/ Curator, Asian American Art Center, New York

"The repetitive pattern-like compositions of Bivas are breathtaking. The choice of colors and the mesmerizing effect of the visuals shows an artist who understands the intricate working of the human mind." Hypenated Spirit, Online Magazine, New York

In order to make a substantial stride in the development of his most recent and art historically most significant work that I have known from him.
I think that Mr. Chaudhuri’s work is developing to the point where a public exhibition both in New York and India both in order and a definite contribution to the field. His visual inventions are part of the dialogue of abstraction and painting in general.
Michael R. Chisolm Art Critic/Dirrctor of Triangle/Prof.

At the Asian American Art Center of his creations, the exhibition’s curator Robert Lee stated “…I see the abstructions of chaudhuri ( and Fiaro ) as a pointer to the use of human consciousness; to what to do with consciousness itself.”
