Artist Santosh Rathod

Joined Craft Tatva: May 2022

My works are a spontaneous process and layering of surfaces one over the other and I start a work exploring with the language of abstraction. My works are my personal experiences and reactions to the continuous social happenings around my. The social issues which may not be acceptable by the viewer, I simply layers them aesthetically with this due respect for not hurting anyone’s sentiments. The layers are my personal reactions with particular names or symbols or images which I hide underneath by scratching, scribbling layering with tissue or by drawing. On the whole at that moment that space is very big for me.
