    Prakaar The Art of Kashyap Parikh

    Prakaar The Art of Kashyap Parikh

    Experimental by nature, Kashyap Parikh is a multidimensional artist who has many styles and does not limit himself to working with one medium. There are Prakaar (variants) in shapes, colours, medium, size, genre, tones, lines, and the list goes on. Prakaar is endless. This series is all about one artist and diverse Prakaar. To compose it short, one can say his body of work is interlaced with spirituality and humanity. It is about energy, nature, growth and power being a vital extension. There are certain artworks, which ask for your time. Parikh’s works demand that time. Only then, it can reward you with a wonderful feeling of being with ‘Yourself’. To introspect and to act!

    Can A City Influence An Artist?

    Can A City Influence An Artist?

    Can a city influence an artist and his art? Yes, it does. Sometimes, directly and many times indirectly. But, yes it does and that’s how Boys From Delhi came on the surface. In this case, apart from looking at the aesthetic value, the scale of artwork, visual beauty and investment opportunity, I was more interested in finding one common element in all the artworks that reflected the essence of Delhi. Just like there is diversity in people, the artist from Delhi offers diversity in style, subject and technique. But, that one quality that brings out true essence in their artworks is that of being Fearless. Starting from Faiyyaz Khan, he motivates us to be fearless and THINK. Artist Gurmeet Marwah inspires us to be fearless and LOVE. Works by Hukum Lal Verma encourages to EXPRESS oneself fearlessly and Sunil Yadav's works stimulates to UPGRADE in life. Vipin Singh Rajput's works energizes fearlessly EXPERIMENT whereas Vikash Kalra's works rouses the viewer to be BOLD in spirit. That leads us to the next question: How to look at art? What is so special about these artists and their works? Let’s find out.

    In a Minute | Season 2 - Shanta Samant

    In a Minute | Season 2 - Shanta Samant

    What is Shanta Samant, the creator of this sculpture capable of? The anatomy of the figure is not real, the shapes are exaggerated and there is hardly any expression on the face you can see still you 'connect' with this sculpture. That is what a champion sculptor is for me. Her execution of the subject is amazing. Sculptures like this are more of a pet. The more they stay around you the more they become part of your life. I am in love with this lady as it represents style, confidence, and class. The ‘attitude’ in her style and pose can seduce many men out there.

    In a Minute | Season 2 - SG Vasudev

    In a Minute | Season 2 - SG Vasudev

    In this work, the first striking element is the use of ‘yellow’. You don't see many works that have such tones of yellow used in this proportion. The style of this work is a mix of conceptual and surrealism. Another interesting element to note here is the originality of the artist style. Everyone paints trees. But, what is important to note for an emerging artist is how to create your own ‘tree’. The same goes for faces. The value of this work is mainly because it is the ‘signature style’ of the artist. This work shows there is no need to fill in the canvas to convey your thoughts. By using only two elements ie. The face and tree, Shri Vasudev has conveyed his concept of ‘theatre of life’.
