Inspired by rural tableaus and adept at depicting them in expressionist style, Sanjiivv Sankpal has been dabbling in vibrantly coloured paintings ever since he can remember.

Having held several shows in India and abroad; even as part of an exchange program in Canada, he has garnered learnings that serve to enrich his skill set.

“I do not record the scene merely as my eyes observed it,” he explains. “But imbue the image with a spiritual and psychological nature that echoes in my personal simplified reaction”.

Deft brushstrokes thus give rise to emotionally evocative, dramatic, imaginative, rhythmic, yet, simple canvases that convey far more than the appearance of the subject. His is an impulsive, gestural application of paint and symbolic colours to express emotions.

And his choice of medium is acrylic on canvas – as the dynamic medium justifies his spontaneous thoughts, translating them into form, with ease. He veers from opaque to transparent application and vice versa; exploring the range of hues in the colour palette.
The resultant canvases depict evocative two-dimensional imagery, ingeniously eliminating the depth that gives a three-dimensional result. 

A beautiful show with some exceptional canvases.
