“My paintings try to breathe life into those objects of rural life that are usually taken for granted.”
Gopal Pardeshi, an alumnus of the Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya in Pune, has worked as a background artist designing cartoon animations at Digikor Studio and also as a senior graphic designer at Maximize Learning in Pune. He soon left this to pursue his passion for art full-time.
Gopal depicts the experiences of village life, and feature antique lamps, wooden windows or old utensils, with each painting telling a story. The beautiful portrayal of rural India makes these works extraordinary. He makes use of illuminating light effects and shadows to create paintings that transform everyday objects into works of beauty. When the light strikes them at different points in the day, they all seem to look different, with each having a story to tell.
