Sujata Achrekar is well known for her paintings of faces – faces of the 'Brahmin Brahmacharis'. Her bold rendering of the faces, along with exceptionally bright colors and skillful use of 'Devnagri' letters, have made her works very striking. Traditionally known as the priestly class, the Brahmin takes on a different connotation in Sujata's paintings. Her definition of a Brahmin is “he who knows himself”. He is depicted as a serene stoic figure, eyes hooded, dominating the canvas. She has a natural inclination for meditation and spirituality and this reflects in her works. Sujata has also taught at the prestigious Sir J.J. School of Art.
