He was one of the outstanding sculptorsof his time who provided a breakthrough from the use of clay and plaster of Paris and the western style of realism in vogue since the early part of the century.
During his travels to Europe and The USA in 1951, Bhagat was greatly impressed by the works of Alexander Archipenko, a Russian-American abstract sculptor, and Lynn Chadwick, a British abstract sculptor.
From Archipenko, he received inspiration for developing his cubist/ geometric approach and from Chadwick, interest in using a variety of media.
His geometry is inspired from the natural forms of plants, trees, and flowers that achieve a transformation through his Inner vision in an amazing variety of forms, as seen in some of his masterly works—Shiva Dance, Standing Figure and Flute Player.
He relates the natural form reduced to its basic geometric designations like the square, triangle, circle or the spiral, and assembles them in compositions of rare creativity in his constructions, such as Monarch, Queen and Man Crucified.
They are characterized by their architectural structure and by the use of box-like geometric forms, as for instance, in his Man-I and Man-II. S.A. Krishnan, an eminent writer on art, once wrote: I have always thought that Bhagat is the epitome of the course of contemporary Indian sculpture.
This man, one of the most widely traveled at home, went about quietly, looked around him with wide and wondering eyes, discovering undreamt-of possibilities.
