Bawa's art features bright colours, simple forms, and Indian mythology symbolism, often depicting animals, birds, and dreamlike people, earning him praise and spirituality.

Bawa interpreted Hindu mythological animals, gods, and goddesses with vivid colours, generating harmony, joy, and spirituality through simplicity and purity in his flat, even tones palette.

Manjit, a teenager, drew without technique, expressing his inner ideas. His brother introduced him to Abani Sen, a master of modern Indian painting, and encouraged him to embrace figurative art, affectionately referred to as "Master Babu."

Manjit Bawa identifies mythical icons like Durga, Kali, Shiva, and Krishna as genuine in his imagination, influenced by childhood tales, fables, literature, music, poetry, and art.
