ABOUT THE ARTIST
BhalchandraMandke is a celebrated senior artist from India whose works are permanently on display at the Lalit Kala Academy and the National Gallery of Modern Art.
Mandke’s virtuosity as an artist is apparent in the response of the viewer. His paintings always manage to take over the senses and leave one in a hypnotic state. The vibrant use of colour, the bold strokes and the crystal clear message are evident and add to the beauty of his work.
Painting people from different states of the country greatly influenced Mandke’s idea of identity. He is of the opinion that elements in nature too have influenced the manner in which he introspects. Identity, according to the artist covers a large range of details. Much like the polarities that nature beholds – a concept that has inspired many of his paintings.
Mandke is gloriously uninhibited in expressing his thoughts. His paintings have a storytelling quality that revolve around mysticism and the mysteries of the human mind. It serves as a stimulus for contemplation, pushing one to look for the treasures that lay within.
