Obayya’s works revolve around Kolkata and its experiences. His paintings are knitted with people and their activities in monochromatic color scheme highlighting the subject of prominence.

For Obayya art is a way of expression of experiences & dealings with the ideas of sub-consciousness and consciousness that are transformed from his inner self interacting with sociopolitical matrix within which he exists. He takes subjects from his surrounding society which he experiences daily in his day to day life.
