On view at Pradarshak - “Wilderness” by Vishwajeet Naik


21st May – 2nd June.’12: Pradarshak presents "Wilderness” by Vishwajeet Naik. Click here to view the album.


"Wilderness" is based on the representation of birds as seen in the Indian sub-continent. Using acrylic on canvas, artist Vishwajeet Naik depicts birds and their habitats in near-realistic portrayal. His canvases are the result of his forays into bird-watching and photography. Being a naturalist tells on the artist as he simultaneously exhibits a few paintings from his series, “Birds of Wire”, which is an interesting combination of installation, mural and painting all wrapped in one and a subtle attempt to call the layman’s attention to the dangers of the urbane world that plague our feathered friends.

Through bright brush strokes and close to real representation of birds against abstract backgrounds, the aim is to introduce the beauty of these birds to a discerning audience while striving for their conservation.
