Shamendu Sonavane

Profile | Summary | Artwork

Mumbai based artist Shamendu Sonavane's paintings, inspired by nature are exquisite, even in the limited space of the canvas. He uses knife strokes, brush strokes and the spray technique in limited colour combinations to reveal nature's myriad moods- serene or violent. The abstract oil paintings, currently on display, are from the series, 'Under the Earth', which was inspired by the tragic earthquake in Maharashtra, which occurred on 30th Sep. 1993. This is his attempt to capture the interiors of the earth on canvas through colours and dramatic structures.
