About Apet Pramod
My name is Pramod Apet and I believe myself to be a very expressive person. I realized very early in my life that painting was something that made me happy. Therefore when I decided to take painting as a career, I joined Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya in Pune and learnt the basics of my profession. After that I joined the very well known J. J. School of Arts in Mumbai, where I was groomed and transformed into an Artist.
I love to spread happiness with my paintings and believe that if we harness a happy atmosphere around us, we see beauty in everything and become less cynical. In my works, one can generally find jolly, loving and happy kids. Specially, the Brahmin boys that were seen during the traditional educational system of our Indian people, i.e., Gurukul system, could be generally seen through my works. I have relied on using acrylic colours in my art forms, which help me depict the various expressions of my subjects very effectively. I have been able to show the kids in various acts of life, showing affection and togetherness and I am glad to say that I have been able to depict their innocence as well, which I would consider an achievement for myself. Most of these paintings are inspired by my childhood memories and show the face of rural India.
I hope forward to make more thematic paintings and also diversify my works to show various other aspects of life and, of course grow as an artist. I wish to be more creative and expressive and try to give some realistic angle to my works. I tend to be a perfectionist and so I have a lot of dedication and devotion towards artwork and profession.
I do a lot of figurative paintings on children because they inspire me. His name is Atharva and he draws well. I want him to take up painting as a hobby and not as a career option because it has been a big struggle for me. In this painting, there is an old mirror in which they are showing that they’ve found a mirror. This is a painting that has an angel in it and the angel represents my life. I’m stuck in a bed of thorns and the children in this painting are trying to pull me out.
