contemporary fine art in India.
We wish all our patrons

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.
Jan. – 18thJan.’14: Dual Show by Eknath & Arti Giram.
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
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.
