Aditya translates his societal observations, travel experiences, and unprocessed experiences on canvas in his own unique style, 2Dealism modern pop art. Bright and vibrant at first glance, some of the paintings oft-times depict a dystopian world with utopian colors.
The life of the work is in the balance of shape and line with color, texture, and atmosphere – often demanding a nostalgic response from the viewer. The bold lines give the painting more strength and powerful expression. The artwork is usually symbolic of subtle cryptic elements that veil the real story behind. Aditya is an engineering graduate from BITS Pilani, practicing art in Mumbai. He’s also one of the very few colorblind artists in the world.
Q. Why you made this artwork?
Creation of Adam:
I wanted to recreate the classic Creation of Adam by Michelangelo in my own style. There is something magical about the near touching hands of God and Adam, it’s an icon of humanity. This artwork represents the Genesis, along with the Garden of Eden and the Forbidden fruit. A background of Heaven and Earth is the stage for the act.
Q. How you made this artwork?
I primarily work with acrylic paints on canvas. The process starts with the ideation on a sketchbook, which is then translated as drawing on a large canvas. I try to set the mood of the artwork through colours, and build upon the sketch. The symbols and logos add another layer to the story being told.
Q. Who inspires you to be an artist?
I have been following various artists across the globe, and there are a great many inspiring artists out there. I especially appreciate artists who have added an entrepreneurial touch to their art career, either by starting a clothing or design brand. Jayesh Sachdev (founder, Quirk Box) and Timmy Ham (founder, SLOTH) are two of my favorite artists.
More than a hobby or a skill, art is a lifestyle which personally excites me the most.
