He is currently based in Delhi and is set to complete writing his first novel in English. It deals with a time in the immediate past in Assamese history.

About Paint-Photography

Paint photography is an innovative fusion of painting and photography and Shisir is believed to be the only practitioner of this art in the country today. In Paint-Photography a live person is painted along with the background before being shot in a photograph. After receiving an encouraging response to his works in the recently concluded exhibition in Guwahati he is planning to bring in themes and more elaborate props into his paintings.
