Sanjay Raut is a young artist, who believes in reinventing his repertoire of innocent appeal and childlike character in his realistic thematic paintings.

After successfully weaving a narrative through his extensively appreciated series on Bal Bhikshuks – monk children, the artist forays into creating a fresco-like backdrop, where he painstakingly weaves another narrative.

The strength of his brush work is experienced through both the intricate backdrops and the large expressive eyes, blissfully happy faces and corresponding yellow ochres, ultramarines and oranges. The underlying thought exemplifies simplicity that is the cornerstone of life per se.
