out of box art

Artist Sukhdev Sinh Rathod @ galleries

                            Chemould-Prescott Road and @ Guild India

A trained painter and ceramicist young Indian artist Sukhdev Sinh Rathod ‘s ongoing interest in illusions in daily life has made him create three dimensional wall-works and contradiction between eye and mind series. In the illusionistic mode he creates three dimensional spaces- wooden boxes using acrylics.


contradiction between eye and mind-series

(watercolour on Arhes paper)

The tension between real and virtual space brings out multiple meaning out of simple objects in his art.

Besides his installation – like piantings, I love his architectural work as these installations evoke ‘still in the cabinet-  but out of box feeling’!

How do you describe global warming?

Or for that matter a peek into future where you would meet polluted world as well as aliens?

Who are looking like aliens-we or them?

But then hope, lotus and leaves are eternal!

Analyze your way, ask your questions and find your answers in these simple watercolours where fresh colours also tug at your heart.

Exhibited in February these year at Chatterjee & Lal art gallery the series was named ‘Breathe’.

does this make me a vandal


                                   Does this make me a vandal

                               asks artist Apnavi Thaker herself.

A non-conformist who does not have any formal education in art made her decision to be a painter at the age of six. This Mumbai born artist was in Geneva as a teenager when she got involved in street art; provoking the secure system. Back in Mumbai at the age of 20 she trained under artist Krishnamachari Bose and Artist Jehangir Jani guided her.

No standard way of life for her, she is famous for going bald too. Her artwork is funky, provocative, questioning, a little crude and has certain kind of violence which depicts liberating experiences.
