spent his life and nurtured his creative ventures partaking in the core life style of the tribes of Jharkhand. He trained at Shantiniketan, under the tutelage of eminent stalwart artists like Ramkinkar Baij, Vinod Bihari, Somnath Hore, Dinkar Kaushik, Selim Munshi, Sarbari Roy Choudhury and many others.
His work encompasses tribal art forms and carries the essence and emotion of nature, life and faith. His work depicts harmony, simplicity and peace through color form & use of camouflaged icons of tribal and contemporary blend. He gets inspiration from the core of creation, complimented by the serene natural surroundings of Jharkhand. Thakur has discovered the essential structural patterns of tribal art and fused its geometric sophistication with visual concepts culled from Egyptian wall paintings of the Thutmosis IV era, when eastern Mediterranean art genres of decorative painting began to free themselves from a subsidiary and narrative role. Like many painters all over the world, Thakur has sought to rediscover the essence of the primitive creativity of the eighteenth century dynasty style of Nile Valley paintings. His unique work comes across mostly through mix-medium on Nepalese rice paper.
