2nd Nov. – 14th Nov.’15: Pradarshak presents Debut Solo Exhibition of Dry Pastel Paintings by Pramod Thakare

Pramod is an enterprising young artist, who has been honing his skills at various mediums since the last seven years, always ready to rise to rise to a challenge, to push the envelope.

In this, his debut solo exhibition, Pramod challenges his comfort zone of working in acrylics by working on an entire series in dry pastels on paper. He has chosen the port area of Dahanu and Mumbai as his muse and recreates the old dilapidated structures, and town scapes near the jetties, filling his scenic realm with the beauty of a delicate medium like dry pastels.

The artist, a lively young boy, is drawn by the colour black, which in general tends to be associated with negative implications, at first mention. He strives to transform this into beauteous renderings as he diligently works with cotton wool and paper as his tools, chiseling forms from just the colour black. 

A show that inspires and uplifts!
