Artist Nilesh Pawar

Joined Craft Tatva: September 2021

Explorations into both subject and medium seems to be an ongoing process in Nilesh's journey as an artist. From conventional, yet alluringly sensitive still lifes.... to stylised figure based symbolic composition.... to his recent series on the 5 Elements of nature.... Nilesh explores the significance of the five elements of nature and their relationship with man and also between the elements themselves. Colour controls the presence of emotion that is attached to every elements -The Fiery, warm reds of fire and the sublime blues of Water and Wind. Form and colour is expressed through a conscious effort to create a 'meaningfully designed' visual. A smooth rendering in spray technique, specially selected by Nilesh for this series is the 'Key' that bring about Harmony.... the harmony with which the elements prevail in their surrounding. Elements have been given a half toned effect like the earth or the symbolic spear.... it adds a fantasy feel to the subject. The depth in his painting is a reflection of the artist's own character. Nilesh has always striven to communicate the underlying content of his thoughts through his works.

Focus Areas: Figure, Religious, etc.
