Rich earthy tones, bright splashes of colour and a strong representation of Goan architecture and Old Indian architectures is what you will be treated to in the paintings by Sanjiv Sankpal.
Sanjiv Sankpal’s works encapsulate the idea of Krishna and Radha and rural landscapes and life. At a close distance, the canvas looks like a big splash of vibrant colour contrasted against earthy tones. The figures of men and women in his paintings are intense and have a devout sense of belongingness with the other elements on the canvas. Centering on human relations, Sanjiv’s works reflect the rural sensuality with ease, where we see women painting in bright colours, mostly faceless but witch a child clinging on them in flowing garments. From afar, the paintings make much more sense as the figures stand out — aesthetics, graceful and pleasing. Sanjiv Sankpal, coming from the rural part of Maharashtra has done his best to bring out the beauty of rural India.
