about the artist
Born in 1973, Nitish’s work comes in patches of bright colour in acrylic on large expanses of paper and canvas. His bold uninhibited brush strokes are suggestive of a burgeoning energy that seems to stem from the cathartic process of creation. His pictorial plane is often ‘organized’ by striking, flat, color panels that frame patches of exhilarating brush work rendered with abandon. And yet, somewhere amidst all the chaos, definite geometrical forms appear afloat the planes of colour. Nitish received his BA (1996) and MA in (1998) in Painting from the Indore School and has had many well-recieved solo exhibitions in India.
