    The artist, who started his journey way back in 1987, has great for respect for Padmashree awardee Dipali Borthakur, often referred to as the ‘Nightingale of Assam’ and her husband Neelpawan Baruah, another renowned painter.


    “The songs sung by Dipali Borthakur are very popular and they are a reflection of the rural backdrop and tradition of the state. I have decided to make scratch paintings on themes of her songs including ‘Hunor kharu nalage muk’, ‘Bandhu ebar aahi jaba’ etc,” he said. This would be his tribute to Dipali and Neelpawan Baruah for their immense contribution towards enriching Assamese art and culture, he added.
    On July 9 this year, Barooah created a world record in London by scratching the images of various folk dances from over 40 countries including the UK, the US, Spain, Italy, China, Australia, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, France and Thailand besides Bihu and other Indian folk forms on a 20 metre long and 30 cm broad bromide paper.Barooah also plans to popularize the art form in the state. “Unlike other art forms, one cannot use a pencil for the initial drawing or can’t even sketch the outline. The blade scratches are the first and final strokes on bromide paper. A small mistake can spoil the entire art work. So, one has to be extremely careful while making a piece of scratch art,” he said, adding that he would try to popularize scratch art among the youth.
