Artist Of The Month

My current body of works in oil are based on naturescapes which draw their inspirations from my essential roots to the Indian culture and nature. My connection with nature is very deep and goes a long a way back to my childhood. In my paintings I mingle literary inspiration with those vital experiences of my life. The distinct play of colors and textures of different seasons, blooming of different flowers and sprouting leaves, interplay of light and shade in the sky in different time of the year - all have a role to play in my vision. Also I draw lot of inspiration from the noble prize winning Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore’s songs and poetry on nature.

The whole process of creation can be summed up in four stages:

1. Preparation (which is here synonymous to experience and observation)

2. Marination of thought and idea

3. The AHA moment – the defining moment when I suddenly get a real vision or clarity which I can use to change the blank canvas

4. The creative process – the “job” of painting itself.

I never draw or plan before a painting has started, it starts spontaneously once the vision has dawned, and I keep working on it, applying and re-applying colors, writing and pasting, stripping and scratching and whipping the surface until I get the desired effect.

And once the job is finished, I like to leave it to people’s imagination and feelings: to the “right brain”, rather than to their “left hemispheric stuff” like knowledge and understanding.

Artist Of The Month

Since my child hood I was trying to express my dream with colours on paper. I had not faced any bindings from my parents. They have always inspired me to grow up with my dreams, so at first I want to thank my parents because without their support I could not walk smoothly to my journey of an artist.                                                                                    I completed my graduation from Government College of Art & Craft (Kolkata) on 2003. After completion of my Bachelor Degree on visual arts I decided to work as full time artist though it was not so easier for me. Sometimes I need to work as commission based for carrying out of my daily expenses. At that time I faced so many travails but they did not destroy my ambition.                                                                                                                
Since 1998 to 2013 I participated in several group shows in India like Kolkata, Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai (Harmony art foundation), Chennai (Art world), Bangalore, Nagpur, and also in abroad like Bangladesh (Dhaka), Dubai.   I also conduct solo show at TAJ BENGAL HOTEL Kolkata. I participated in some painting workshops.                                                                                                                                                      
Private collections are made, like in HOTEL ITC SONARBANGLA Kolkata, HOTEL OBEROI GURGAON, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangladesh, Dubai, U.S.A etc. Now I working as a full time painter in my own studio.  
Every human has feelings and a sensitive human always feel every moments of nature, some cause of globalization our global atmosphere have now so many changed which is so worried for our life of earth. Every human being should think about it. I always love nature, believes that colour is a universal language of expression and nature have endless colour.                                                                                                                                                                                      
Though I don’t use colour to illustrate theme. Colour itself is my theme. Colour has existence of its own, it generates emotion and atmosphere whether happiness, melancholy warmth, buoyancy of serenity. Emotion of joy, sorrow, anger have a language in colour and nature encompasses all, that is colour. Nature herself is a composition of countless colours and it is the tones and nuances of these that I try to capture in my paintings after all I inspired by nature.

Artist of The Month

  I graduated in painting from Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Arts (CAVA), University of Mysore, Karnataka in 2007 and (MFA) will be completing Masters in painting this year. Initially from my school days I had interest in painting. In those days I was just expressing myself through painting. That time I had no idea about life of painting and the effect of it, but after my schooling,  I came to know about BFA degree, and I joined the course to get some degree. These 5 years of journey was the turning point of my life where I started thinking about developing my skills and started utilizing the time and work. I met different kind of people with different goals in life, which helped me to distinguish myself and due to nice environment I could able to establish myself. I went on practicing different things in paintings. My friends circles is like a rainbow with full of different colors, each have its own meaning, effect and its own destiny in life, due to all this I could able to take up and reach this first step of my life. 

Currently l have my own art practices in Bangalore, Karnataka, India and have been exhibiting my work of art at various cities in India.
I greatly get inspired by the common man’s eco system and you get to see them in my art work. In other words, experiences of People around me inspire me. My creations comprises of Nature, Common Man - his needs, complex and symbiotic equations. I visualize them with a different perspective and bringing them on my canvas gives me great joy. Through my paintings I try to connect and relive some experiences that we all have lived in different phases of life. A glimpse of my inspirations can be seen in my work from highlighting the spirit of survival of a vegetable vendor dreaming to give a better life to his family, to a picturesque depiction of day to life in an apartment where in there is so much variety in something which looks so similar, to capturing  the feeling of eternal search that lingers on whenever we visit a roadside book shop and finally a more serious effort to depict a current socio economic issue of corruption, and its impact on common man.
I have learnt if we have patience and dedication we can achieve anything in life. This is all my because of my friends, parents and my surroundings.
Best college art gives me immense pleasure to be associated with BCA which offers a gigantic platform for artists from various horizons. I feel greatly encouraged to seize every opportunity at BCA in exhibiting my works and getting to know other artists from various genres. I look forward to a long lasting association with BCA. 
 I really thank my friends, colleagues and especially my parents without their support nothing was possible.

Mukesh Salvi work statement Spending his early days in the streets of the beautiful city of Udaipur (Rajasthan), Mukesh Salvi has grown up wandering aimlessly on the bicycle and wondering deep about life and its little ways. He has spent hours in the playgrounds, playing games and often got lost in his own world of fantasy. However, the best time that he has spent was at home, with his family; quarrels with his siblings. He clearly remembers his days at school— classmates.

Mukesh salvi paintings are nostalgic, depicting the rural people he grew up among est. His source of inspiration has been the live of the people from his village. He has created dramatic canvases –Blue, black and white on a red background. His work, done in a fine figurative genre, stands out for its firm line work coupled with a sense of style, on a bold arresting background. His works is a telling statement of our times, typifying the modern concern for our surroundings. The artist's medium of expression is acrylic on canvas. His figurative work has a dream like quality about it. Bold colors coupled with pastel shades give it a textural feel. He strives to establish the harmony between people and their environment of Nature.

 Drawing inspiration from the feeling of nostalgia, Mukesh Salvi has created his new series of canvases— 'My Feelings'. The series depict elementary feelings of human beings, which is a mixed bag of both happy and sad. Mukesh Salvi's choice of palette is something worth looking our for. In most of his works, bold strokes of vivid colors are evident. Patterns in a hazy background with humans resembling puppets, make an appearance in Mukesh Salvi's works. His artworks bring forth deep feelings, which are depicted using surreal figures in various postures. From the very beginning, lines have been the foundation of his paintings. Working with lines and other shapes, Mukesh Salvi has painted different moments. While painting, the artist makes sure that all the elements compliment each other and their amalgamation bring a pleasant essence to his works.

Best wishes

An arty affair

What might world-class whisky and art have in common? Well, though making good whisky can be scientifically explained, it remains in the realm of art that's executed by skilled craftsmen. "So the qualities required for making good art and good whisky are not dissimilar!" said the kilt-clad Andy Fairgrieve of Glenfiddich, who was in India for a purpose.

Glenfiddich (the single malt Scotch whisky) has collaborated, an online Indian art gallery, to hunt down promising new Indian artists for its prestigious Artists in Residence Programme (AiR). The award called 'Emerging Artist of the Year' is in its second edition this year. AiR culls eight artists from across the globe each year, who are invited to Scotland for a three-month residency.

For this year's award, a top-notch nine-member jury including leading artists and collectors, besides Andy Fairgrieve, co-ordinator of the programme, picked 625 artists who feature in

From among them, the best five were shortlisted as finalists and feted at an evening dedicated to them. Sharing the stage were fresh new names — Chennai's Yuvan Bothisathuvar, Shivanand Shyagoti from Bangalore, Calcutta's Sumantra Mukherjee, Delhi-based visual artist Ankush Safaya and Gurgaon-based Poorvesh Patel. The event, dubbed as 'Five For The Future', was held at art gallery Nature Morte at The Oberoi, Gurgaon, where their works were displayed.

Kapil Chopra, president, The Oberoi Group with winner YuvanBothisathuvar

A bashful Bothisathuvar was declared the 'Emerging Artist of the Year' for his amazing work in paper/newsprint. Bothisathuvar has just earned himself an award which carries a total value of Rs 10 lakh including one lakh in cash, a residency in Scotland courtesy Glenfiddich, a monthly stipend, material allowances, travel, accommodation and – to top it all – a solo show at Nature Morte in 2014. Soon, Bothisathuvar will set off for Dufftown, home to the Glenfiddich distillery, and take inspiration from his surroundings and create his artwork.

Kapil Chopra, mentor, bestcollegeart.comand president, The Oberoi Group, said: "The award seeks out the next generation of artists and also nurtures and supports emerging talent." Chopra's, by the way, is a veritable hotbed where young Indian contemporary artists reach out to collectors. Artworks are priced between Rs 60,000 and Rs 2.7 lakh.

The task of short-listing the five best artists from among the 625 (and a total of some 2,500 artworks) fell on a hotshot jury that spent months before arriving at the five final names. The jury comprised Chopra, Fairgrieve, Peter Nagy, director of Nature Morte, artists Veer Munshi, Jiten Thukral and Sumir Tagra, art collectors Rajshree Pathy, Swapan Seth, Nitin Bhayana and Rajiv Bhatia, director, William Grant & Sons, India sub-continent.

Last year's winner of the 'Emerging Artist of the Year' award, textile artist Juhikadevi Bhanjdeo, is still feeling the after-effects of her stint in Dufftown: "It proved life-changing for me," she gushed. She used the money to start her own studio in India.

Artist Of The Month

My age is 80 years. I discovered my true calling of art very early in life. I completed my primary education from Hathras in U.P. a small town, where my father a railway station master settled after retirement in the year 1942. I had to curtail my desire to study further as  lack of a college coupled with financial constraints forced me to move to Delhi to eke out an honest living at a very young age.

I started my humble career designing sewing reel labels for a small printing press in Old Delhi. It was during this phase that I was appointed by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on a short term basis to illustrate pottery and antiquities found in their various excavation of ancient sites. My art talent and vision found a permanent place with ASI and I spent many fruitful years drawing inspirations from travelogues with them. In my quest of learning  I received a Diploma in Art from the prestigious Sir J.J School of Art, Mumbai in the year 1963.. During my stint with ASI, a veritable treasure trove of Indian art, I sought my inspirations from temple sculptures, caves such as the Khajuraho and Ajanta murals. I painted many ancient ruins to life during the day and my own art by night. Many of these found a pride of place at the National Museum, New Delhi and won me accolades and recognition galore. I retired as Chief Artist from ASI.

I have been pursuing my dreams ever since. My creativity is infused with the atmosphere of joy and life, and the belief I am capable of creating my own happiness. My body of work is polyphonic. I have explored a multitude of painting genres and have begun to explore the endless pathways that my creative mind is discovering.

Artist Of The Month

I work basically with Acrylic on Canvas, but sometimes I use variety of mediums like oil, charcoal, dry pastels, water colour etc. I opt for a large canvas where my work concept is spread-out suitably.

The fixation with all that glitters and the blinkered pursuit of all that the neighbour has, has set the fulcrum of modern existence on blingy show-ism. This has revolutionised the very culture of consumption, leading very often, to a murky bleakness; an inevitable fallout of selfish, inflated egos and life-patterns. Existences have gone from communal to intensely solitary. My figures symbolise this acute sense of loneliness, lost in a maze of self-inflicted consumerism. 

My Figures – as they appear in paintings or in sculptures – are, all, without an exception, depicted in a manner that is eerily grotesque and yet identifiably human. Slits for eyes, bulbous noses, thick-set lips and jaws, a baldness that places the pointedness of the ears in sharp focus and a neck – or the very pronounced lack of it – attaching the large rotund face to a flabby, disproportionate body, highlight my disturbance with the overt emphasis on the usual trappings of post-modern habitation. The colours I use are all solid enough to carefully avoid any merging with the textured backgrounds I creates. This solidity enhances the boldness of my figures endowing them with the intended quality of both awe and repulsion.

‘’ is the best online portal for young upcoming artist; they provide a big and reliable platform to upcoming artist. I also got an opportunity to exhibit my works in their 1st show name as ‘Present is Now’ 2010 curated by Peter Nagy. That was my big experience as a professional young artist, which I will never forget. Thanks to and team.
