India’s promising and talented art practitioners

Murali Cheeroth: His involvement with theatre coupled with continuing interest in cinema helps him in presenting his images through dramatic ambiance for an unusual perspective. Images he takes are from the industrial medium - of photography, of cinema, of the digital. Using these industrialized mediums as the basic iconography of his work, he then goes back and reframes and uses the processes of translation, transliteration, transmutation of the popular image.

Hindol Brahmbhatt: He treats his work as a documentation of historical reality in contemporary context, and looks for clues of social changes. Thus emerges a universe that the viewers can identify with, albeit from a new perspective! His artistic process revolves around attainment of thematic and stylistic unity. Its broad objective is to form a language that calls for continuity and intuition. This infinity of composition reminds us that each work is a part of a greater body of images and ideas. These are schematic images of evolution, growth and creativity.

Nitish Bhattacharjee: His work is a documentation of his memories, his impressions, and perceptions of his surroundings. For a recent show, he moved to abstract or ‘non-representational art’ as he termed it. His works mostly in patches of bright color (in acrylic) on paper and canvas are an outcome of bold brush strokes that denote a burgeoning energy, stemming from the cathartic creative processes. His pictorial plane is 'organized' by striking, flat color panels, which frame patches of skilful brushwork.

Sudarshan Shetty: An incongruous association of objects that might bear different meanings is intended on his part to form new meaning and in the process, create an abstract space for exploring the dark underbelly of the human-object relationship, the duality of free will as well as the inertness of things. His work hinges on a creative mix of intense observation and wit.

He takes apart ubiquitous objects without dismantling them, and decodes them, by revealing their inherent mechanical being. Looking to experiment with found objects in a wide array of media, he may combine the diverse forms in curious object-assemblages.
