According to an unsourced account of his career that I have found on several web sites,
Gaitonde's works are known for evoking subliminal depths. . . . Art, for Gaitonde, is a process complete in itself and in exploring his inner spaces and transient realities it helps him move towards himself. A non-conformist, Gaitonde always kept himself away from anything that would be extraneous to his identity as a painter. He as evolved as painter who is increasingly more meticulous in the presentation of his identity.
