His works have been exhibited internationally and have been acquired by many art academies.[3] Devajyoti Ray is primarily known for his particular genre of work called Pseudorealism,[4] which involves the use of offbeat colours and abstract shapes to arrive at an imagery which looks as comprehensible as real. Devajyoti Ray lives and works in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata.
