Meet the Artist
The artist draws inspiration from Vadodara's rich history and culture, blending architectural elements, structures, and maps in their work. They gather materials from diverse sources, with a notable influence from a map painting by Srinathji Nathdwara. Their 118-year-old house, built traditionally, requires repairs, which they handle with a family background in technical expertise. They also design Tazias for Moharram, utilizing engineering experience for intricate designs. The artist's primary focus is on visually capturing a city and its symbols. They explore the significance of space in modern architecture and aim to update traditional techniques. Their notable works include the "Vadodara Series," "Makan ki kheti," "Prakash in shodh," "Black series," and "Chiristhayi." Additionally, they appreciate the intricate craftsmanship of Vastu Shastra style in 20th-century buildings, particularly admiring the unique lattice patterns and arch designs. They pay attention to the functional and aesthetic aspects of lines in buildings, observing the competitive landscape in construction. Through various techniques and materials, they create layered textures on different surfaces, using charcoal, ink, watercolor, and acrylic colors. Color is a central theme, lending imagination and abstraction to the surface. The artist explores city architecture, emphasizing simplicity and unity amidst diverse shapes. They seek to reevaluate city planning, taking into account cultural, social, political, and economic factors as cities grow and green spaces diminish.
