28th Oct. – 9th Nov.’13: Pradarshak presents  Solo Exhibition of Paintings by Rahul Mhetre.

Artist Rahul Mhetre  is a quiet observer and when he voices his thoughts, one is acquainted with a person, who thinks deeply but finds joy in small things; small incidents of life  - a corollary that is expressed in his paintings that hold mass appeal with their vibrant colours and pragmatic connect.

With a diligent review of colour, tool and subject, the artist tries to show current urbanizing rural scenarios, where one is transfixed – between the dilemma of nature and a comfort level on one hand, and the urge to upgrade on the other. Without gong too deep into the subject, the artist, as a true-blue optimist dreamer, seeks out the pleasant and the joyous and using deft brushwork, palette knife and at times, both; draws out the essence of innocence that is still native to a large part of rural India.
