An abstract painter, Gopal S. Adivrekar has taken the art of non-figurative painting to a new high. His canvases are unforgettable creations of colour.
Born in 1938, in a small village of the Konkan, Adivrekar came to Mumbai and joined the Sir J. J. School of Art to complete his graduation in 1963. He then went on to chart a distinguished career as an abstract artist. Adivrekar has been associated with the Lalit Kala Academi for a number of years. He has also served as an art designer with the Weavers Service Centre and held the post of Chairman of the Bombay Art Society for a couple of years. His influence on the art scene has been two-fold: both as an artist and as an organiser.
