For me, painting is not just making a verbatim copy of what nature spreads out all around. It is the ability to interpret what nature individually communicates with me. My love for travel has not just elevated my soul but it has also inspired my art to a very large extent.
My fascination with historical places in India has opened up new avenues in my mind as well as my water colour paintings. I am trying to showcase the untold stories that hide in the recesses of pillars, monuments and ruins. I find peace in the simplicity of rustic and historic Indian landscapes and I would like my painting to make its audience feel awed and calm at the same time.
Based out of Mumbai, Vikrant is a man of few words who lets his brush and palette do most of the talking. He holds a general diploma in art (Drawing and Painting) from L.S. Raheja school of art, Bandra, Mumbai and stood ninth in order of merit, Maharashtra in the year 2001. He paints with various styles, mediums and techniques and adopts the best suitable feature to reproduce on paper as to what he sees in person. However, he does admit that his inherent passion for watercolours is what has led him to gain mastery over the medium. Vikrant has exhibited his paintings in many group shows including the Art society of India, Louisiana watercolour society, USA amongst others. He has been awarded by the Istanbul watercolour society in 2012 and 2013. His artwork was also included in the international watercolour society’s catalogue in 2012.
