Nobody can paint Benares like Shirodkar

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Nobody can paint Benares  as Yashwant Shirodkar can. He brings in some beauty dimensions into the paintings. There is something in the paintings which has tranquil appeal. He paints the golden reflections of the moon, ancient structures in the temple, the flowing sacred Ganga and the pilgrims – a superb picture of the holy place.

There is no loud colours there but always muted colours – brown and yellow mostly. An yellow, brown glow lights up the canvas.

And this time, he has painted some exquisite scenes of Rajasthan. He says he finds Rajasthan fascinating – with ancient buildings and temples. The river where people bathe and temple steps where people play or meditate appear in his paintings.

The 62-year-old artist has shown his paintings not only in India but at several global art centres. Oil and canvas is this artist's favourite medium, but he has done several water colours as well. Sometimes he uses a palette knife.

He is a prolific painter.

He has had no problems about sale of his paintings. He has a steady group of buyers. The exhibition is at Artland Gallery, Explanade Mansion, Kala Gahoda. Contact: Sunil Chauhan: 9820079405.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Patient and prudent efforts prove fruitful, particularly regarding money matters. Be more prompt with work as you tend to take it easy. There are opportunities galore, provided you are game to taking risks. However avoid making large financial commitments for these will lead to setback. Be prepared for a little harmless flirting at an outing. Try not to get too emotional about a little fun for that is what it is meant to be.
