Artist by soul, nature & profession. I am attracted to colours and paintings since my childhood. Completed art education with the subjects sketching, portraits & creative paintings. If talk about my paintings, most of them have the subjects related to spirituality & cosmic powers. Whenever I think of abstract art, the subjects of cosmic energy, divine power, soul, prime soul, human existence & spirituality gets portrayed on the canvas spotaneously. Most of my paintings are of modern, tantrik, conceptual, abstract, expressionism, impressionism styled. I believe Tantrik as an ideal style to express the infinite powers of human mind & Aesthetics. You will see more colours than lines in my artworks. I believe lines are a bond & resrtriction in expressing feelings. Freely used colours make the feelings visible. All the qualities of the world have been identified as three basic gunas (Guna is referred to a quality of human), Tamas(dullness, inertia), Rajas(luxury, passion) & Sattva(harmony, purity). Tamas is a dull & sluggish mind , Rajas is an extroverted mind full of aggression, anxiety & desire, Sattva is a calm, wise & happy mind. I make the best use of colors to express these gunas(qualities). When I use colours on canvas with an open mind, it makes the viewer feel my feelings. My paintings make the viewer fall into a kind of fascination. When someone studies my paintings deeply, he/she can feel the divinity. No matter wherever the painting is placed, you can feel the vibes when you see it because I don’t use the colours just to fill the blank canvas, but I use them as my soul teaches me to make viewer feel the positivity, gratitude & love.
A scene in a movie or play expresses a feeling through music, facial expressions, lighting and this makes the audience really feel what the artists are trying to express, similarly, painting is also a visual art in which composition of colours, lines, shapes, tone and textures make the viewer experience the feelings. I always feel satisfaction when making paintings but my paintings have it’s value only when the viewer can also feel the same.
In short, I see painting as an art of expressing feelings. I am artist not because I make paintings, but because I express wonderful feelings though the paintings.
I am thankful to all my art teachers & friends for all their support, specially to a wonderful artist Mr. Ajitsinh M Kher.
