Designs of Dashrath Patel

I am just trying to understand work and times of design veteran and artist Padma Shri Dasharath Patel who died yesterday.

From paintings influenced by French Impressionism to geometrical and abstract styles to abstract collage works recently which had wood and tinted paper, his work showed a multiplicity of styles, techniques and mediums. He played and experimented with light and colours.

One thought on “A Tribute: Dashrath Patel”

  1. It is such a great pleasure to see other fellow artist who was born in the same village as I come from. I unfortunately never met him but so pleased to see his work at last. I was so surprised to see that small village like Sojitra has produce such a great number of talented people.
