EXHIBITION ART BY GHANSHYAM GUPTA

A painter, sculptor and printmaker who occasionally writes poetry, Ghanshyam Gupta has exhibited his paintings along with some of the greatest artists of all time, including Lucian Freud, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Rembrandt, at the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy of Art in London. Also having won the Nordsten Award for the Best Print of the Year from the London Original Print Association, the artist has a lot of accolades to his name. His latest series of paintings is devoted to optical illusions, combined with transcendental meanings.

He explains that he does not consciously set about making an image but instead tries to capture the essence of his feelings and depict it through various media.

Gupta says, “In my new paintings, the image will help you meditate, concentrate and make you realise the depth of colours and strength of images. Colour can capture the individual mind, relate to the conscious mind and take you to a different world, as well as work as colour therapy for your mind. I am trying to touch the soul with visual material. In short, I try to release the body, mind and soul through my brush. The work has high visual attraction, which holds the mind and induces peace.”

Using serigraphs, etching, metal casting and printmaking among other techniques, his content and subjects are based on past experiences and are painted in abstract, figurative manners. With daily experiences and life influencing his work, his latest exhibition is definitely worth checking out.
