Greetings from Gallery Pradarshak, Khar, Mumbai, the smallest known gallery of contemporary fine art in India.

We wish all our patrons a very Happy, Peaceful & Successful 2014!

Pradarshak begins 2014 with two of its many successful artists – Eknath Giram and Sanjay Raut. While the former has a distinctive style of semi-abstract figurative paintings, where his stylized Krishna is oft compared to Italian master Modigliani’s elongated forms; the latter depicts a mastery over realistic figurative work, layered with a backdrop of heritage-styled, fresco artwork, and with contemporary figures commanding the foreground. Each of the artists has a strong background with several years in the field, umpteen exhibitions and accolades to his credit. Accompanying them is debutante Arti Giram, with her playful and vivid abstracts.

6th Jan. – 18thJan.’14: Dual Show by Eknath & Arti Giram.
Accompanying Eknath Giram in this – his 9th solo exhibition – is Arti Giram, his wife, who debuts with her abstract paintings in acrylic on canvas. Very recently graduated from an art college in Pune, Arti shows a lot of promise in the way she layers her canvas with a confident and free flow of colours and textural nuances.

Eknath Giram is a young artist, who is slowly carving a niche for his figurative style in mainstream art today. Using Krishna and his tales as his central theme, the artist communicates his thought processes through muted shades and subtle tonal variations that anoint the canvases with a depth of understanding and lend tangibility to the works of art. His paintings reflect the moods, episodes from the life and times of Krishna or other imagery that is associated with the narrative of Krishna. His style is expressionist semi-abstract figurative.
