Neeraj’s imageries are constructed and conceptualised in the urban context, the crisis of a degenerating environment which he experiences consciously and subconsciously. Life around him for example; the pandemic in recent times, the growth of concrete jungles in the cities, the traffic jams and other urban complexities, become a part of his creative process which he portrays in his work.
