Who knew that a person who used to paint cinema hoardings would actually go on to be known as ‘The Picasso of India’? If you have not figured it out yet, we are talking about M.F. Hussain who, amidst myriad struggles and controversies, made his mark upon the bastion of great artists. So, pick up your brush, brush up your artistry, and let your emotions go berserk! For, we don’t want to lose budding Picassos in NIT Rourkela. And for all those times, you kept drawing superhero pictures on the back pages while attending a boring lecture; for all those times you triumphed over your art block, it’s time they find a platform.

D361 is here to provide you that platform.

A sketch by Debashis Rout, Batch of 2013. To people who don't know him but have seen his artworks, he is a magician, but to those who him, he is a perfectionist. Hard work, punctuality and humility are synonymous to him. Known as 'Rilu' by his close friends, Debashis co-founded chitraang club of NIT Rourkela. Having a sound academic record and artistic talents that can speak for their own, Debasish is one of the most talented persons NIT has ever seen. We thank him profusely for sharing his artwork with us.
