Vishal Wadaye Artist
Vishal Wadaye

“For me the great happiness lies in stimulating strong recollections of specific emotions of the audience through my paintings.
Since my childhood, I have received life, still life and nature as the most inspiring source for drawing and painting. I am immensely passionate for figurative compositions and live portraiture.
I do believe that painting from life investigates not only the painting’s ability to record the authenticity of the real world but to communicate the artist’s experiences also. Effects of light are all over to reveal nostalgia, isolation, and spirituality!”
