About Yashwant Shirwadkar, Mumbai

Everyday Life Meets the Artist’s Eye

Born in 1951, in what was then known as Bombay, Yashwant Shriwadkar started painting in 1977 after receiving his diploma in Art. Since then Shirwadkar has been a prolific painter, best known for his lively and realistic landscapes. While oil on canvas is this artist’s favourite medium, he has painted several watercolour works as well.

His occasional use of the palette knife instead of his brush to interpret his surroundings adds a new dimension to each of his realistic landscapes.

Varanasi, or Banaras as it is also known, is a source of inspiration for the artist who paints the everyday events of one of the holiest places in the world. Shirwadkar’s paintings show this ancient city in all of its glory — people taking dips in the river or praying and meditating on its banks, the multitude of small temples on the cliff face, and the narrow streets teeming with life and activity.

His 2002 canvas – ‘Symphony on the Steps’ is an example of his mastery of the palette knife and oils to recreate the typical scene one witnesses on a Banaras Ghat, or the steps that lead down to the holy river.

Shirwadkar has travelled far and wide with solo exhibitions in Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi, Varanasi, Cochin, France, Germany, London, Luxembourg, Belgium, Nepal, Switzerland, and the United States of America. In 2000, he held his 50th one-man show at the Artpilgrim Gallery in New Delhi.

He has participated in group shows too, both in India and abroad. His works are also regularly included in domestic and international auctions of Indian art, breaking records at auction houses like Sotheby’s and Christie’s.

 

Specialities

 

The inexhaustible and tireless artist takes 15-22 days to make a canvas come to life. Most of his landscape paintings bring to life scenes from bustling Banaras, scenic Kashmir, and rural Rajasthan.  His unique use of the palette knife with oil on canvas makes his works eye-catching, elegant, and unique must-haves for art connoisseurs.  

Shirwadkar blends his colours so realistically in all his paintings that we can actually see the warmth of the rising sun. We can almost hear the city come to life in the glow of the morning, feel the peaceful radiance of a sunset lighting up the skies and transforming Varanasi into a shimmering and almost breathing entity. Every single painting is unique and will easily enhance the look and feel of any interior decoration.

    MORE ABOUT YASHWANT SHRIWADKAR RAJASTHAN-1

    Rajasthan or the ‘land of kings’ is India’s largest state by area. It comprises most of the wide, inhospitable Thar Desert and shares a border with Pakistan. It also borders the Indian states of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Gujarat. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations in India. In Yashwant Shriwadkar Rajasthan-1, a typical Rajasthani scene is depicted. An ancient building forms the backdrop while a man and two women dressed in local garb stand in the forefront. Also seen are clothes hanging down from the balconies and a clothesline. The artist recreated this view in a realistic yet slightly surrealistic manner. In his works he attaches great importance to ‘lavanya’ which means grace and beauty.
