About the exhibition:in this group show  ‘Green Palette’ is a revival of freshness of Romanticism. As its name suggests, it is about taking the world back into nature holding on the social reality as well. The artists involved in this exhibition have creations depicting man’s mystic relationship with nature. There is also a revolutionary energy flowing in Green Palette which deliberately transforms our perception of the world. Like, artist Ashok Hinge, who uses natural and man-made elements in nature to simplify the concept of completeness of world around us. Nature is a source of subject and image; it’s a refuge from the artificial constructs of civilization. Green Palette aims at retrieving clean and green environment world wide. Every artists participating in this exhibition contributes in one form or the other in increasing Environmental awareness and spreading greener. It would be a great delight to feel and experience the revival of Romanticism in art after a long time on the group show ‘Green Palette’ and also be a part of spreading the message-  Gear up to make Globe Green again.   

About the artist’s work and artist:

Nitin Vinchure displays classic interpretation of all creations in this Universe with his imagination. He logical explains his imagination cum interpretation saying that, before any creation, there was only the Mahashunya or Nix. But Shakti or Sheerenrgy existed ...

Vijai Jain creations are perfect examples of symbolic creations. For him Solar System, Earth, Soil, Water, Birds, trees and his alkies’- the human beings, all the gleans are symbols surrounding us. Life proceeds enjoying the process of decoding the meaning these gleans...  

Madhav Joshi desires to express the "inexpressible"--the infinite--through the available resources of colors and forms. He too is completely awed by nature. He applauds the Nature’s capacity as a unified whole. The realistic creations are devoid of scientific or rationalist associations.

Vikas Malhara. I feel his statement suggests that nothing is static and permanently dominant in Life. For him Life is a kaleidoscope of happiness and sorrow, of brightness and darkness, of the beautiful and the ugly, of the form and the formless, of the seen and the unseen. They interplay, dominate by turns, changing patterns and meanings along the way.

Raju Baviskar, social realism is subordinate to imaginative suggestion, and most importantly the ideals suggested by his creations based on honest, hard working villager, their struggle round the clock for survival all these have simplicity and innocence, drawn with deep thinking of the reflections that he has seen in their eyes and expressions on their faces. The bodies are worn out and yet have hopes of something good to happen.

Ashok Hinge manages at his best to unify symbolism and realism. His creations are inspired by the God-made and Man-made elements, which is an attempt by the artist to metaphorically simplify the universe. For him man-made creations like temples as shown in ‘Surya Mandir’ is as important as lush green surroundings, mystical landscapes.    

The artist lives and works in Mumbai.

Note from Tuka Jadhav Artist+Curator
Einstein once said that the most incredible thing about the universe is that it is credible at all. There is chaos as well as order in it and after failing to find the Holy Grail of Science in his “Grand Unified Theory" Einstein took comfort in the peace and joy he found in the pursuit of art and music. It is a sad irony of our times that a sight impaired artist should embark on a guest to become the new visionary of the cosmic harmony that eluded Einstein himself. The art of painting can reflect reality like a mirror or distort it like a prism and it is but a magic alchemy of forms expressed in colour and texture in the manner of a shaman and sorcerer as Degas confessed. To give it an attribute of divine revelation is to rob the glory of creation from the creator himself.

(Tuka Jadhav in studio getting ready for Revolution art show)
Tuka Jadhav's story is as tragic as it is thought provoking. His rise from humble origins to win the Bendre-Husain Award is an inspiration to others. His catastrophic loss of vision an eclipse at the zenith of his career. His attempts at a renaissance are exemplary and grandiose. We are all moved by the divine beauty of creation reflected in nature. A writer and poet try to express it in words, a musician by melody and a painter with colour. "Synergism” is the coming together ef such creative energies to bring about peace and harmony. The mood is created by the abstract "Buddha" installation using a bicycle wheel, seat and screw. The centre-piece of the show is a gigantic 110 x 200" work called "Cosmic Harmony". It evokes the timeless and eternal influence of the Sun and the Moon to make nature blossom on earth. Like the Yin and Yang of existence the artist's handprint above the red-black sun expresses the commingling of matter and spirit....

PRESS RELEASE Exhibition: Contemporary Paintings of Avinash Godbole

PRESS RELEASE Exhibition: Contemporary Paintings of Avinash Godbole Date: April 14 – 21, 2014 Venue: Art Gate Gallery, Churchgate, Mumbai 
Byline: The Art Gate Gallery hosts an exhibition of contemporary paintings by Mumbai based Artist Avinash Godbole. 
(Artist: Avinash Godbole)
About the exhibition: In this solo exhibition Avinash Godbole is showcasing a body of 30 works, inspired by his own recovery from a stroke that left him crippled 11 years ago, and the gradual re-picking up of the brush one hand at a time. These paintings cover diverse subjects ranging from sexuality to philosophy, explorations of the human mind and resurgence from pain. What binds them together is the presence of emotions; whether it be the musician singing a soulful song or a human head - each conveys passion. The choice of colours is bold and the strokes strong and unwavering. Together they create paintings that not only move the viewer but stun with their intensity. 
(Untitled  :Acrylic On Canvas, 48 x 84"in by Avinash Godbole)
About the artist’s work: Godbole’s technique is expressive but his subjects introspective, as he deals with deep existentialist questions. Another recurrent subject is that of sexuality and how we human beings deal with or rather shuns it. Three years ago, Godbole created a series of 25 paintings describing his tryst with stroke. He was also invited to exhibit his paintings at the World Stroke Association's conference in Brazil last year. Hope is the message he wishes to convey to stroke patients and their families. This exhibition is a continuation and tangential progression to that theme.

1) Solo Show by Kumar Vaidya 

2) NEWS UPDATE FOR PRESS ALL OVER INDIA( Art show Date: 22 March 2014)

Write up on Mr. Kumar Vaidya: 

When you think of an artist, names like Friedrich Schiller, Rembrandt etc pops up. Eccentric, unconventional and abstract in their being, they didn’t follow the typical norms of society, following their instinct and desires, they went through life as if it was a canvas, where the only acceptable formula was to use colours, textures and designs that fulfilled their sense of being, in a way that made absolute sense or sometimes, no sense at all.

Mr. Kumar is one of such person. As eccentric as any artist, what sets him apart is this beautiful disposition he has towards life and the meaning it holds. An eternal soul with the exuberance of a boy, caught in the daily humdrum of life, he is a story within a story. Walking on the road less travelled, he does what he knows best, and that is to just go with the flow of life, wherever it takes him, in whichever way it takes him.

Breaking traditional norms of being an artist, Kumar Vaidya’s life is as colourful and dark as his artwork. Having seen it all in the past 20 years, one thing that never changed was his undying passion towards feeding his artistic flair in whichever way possible, to learn rather than acquire.

A true artist doesn’t restrict his emotions and thoughts to one channel of outlet, instead they let it flow out through any medium possible, be it music, art or a philosophical take on life. When they talk, they are consumed with this sense of passion about everything and listening to them, your mind can’t help but wander off to the beautiful unexplored dimensions that only a true artist can open.

Such is the persona of Mr. Kumar, unassuming in nature, prolific in thoughts & alternative in personality, his work breaks all benchmarks that restrict human emotions. He is an artist who is completely in tuned with his innermost emotions, which are free flowing and does not limit itself to one form of style.

What sets his work apart is that it gives his viewers a sense of freedom to interpret his work in whichever way they want to.  Not wanting to restrict a persons thought and emotions, his work takes you on a journey of your choice. Open to exposition, his work challenges you to think outside the box, to not restrain your emotions, taking your thoughts on a path that has been unexplored, where meanings and preconceived notions no longer exist, a new territory of unimaginable depths and heights, where no two people will express the same emotions while they are lost in finding the meaning in his art. And when they realise, that the only meaning to bring out of his art is to free one’s mind and let it take its own journey, like Mr. Kumar did, is when the real meaning of his work hits home. 

Bio-Profile: Kumar Vaidya:

Kumar Vaidya is an Indian artist known for his contribution to the cutting-edge yet comprehensive Indian artwork. Born on 5th August 1964 at Kapadwanj, Gujarat, his first artistic endeavour began with his degree in Bachelor of Fine Art from Sir J J School of Art Mumbai. His drive for more rigorous and traditional training led him to Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris – FRANCE on French Government scholarship, 1993.

Kumar Vaidya, known for his avant-garde yet revolutionary artwork, successfully positioned himself in the Indian art domain with his first solo exhibition in Mumbai, Madras and Delhi in 1992.

Constantly reinventing himself while retaining his artistic DNA, Kumar Vaidya, especially known for his sense of style which leans towards layers and straight lines, gives his paintings a mystical eminence and high level of quality and perfection.

Well renowned for his artistic disposition all over, most of Kumar Vaidya’s paintings are in a private collection in France. His alluring art work has also been showcased as a part of Sadruddin Daya's art collection. Mr Vaidya’s artistic talents have been recognized by known names like Rajiv Sethi, who commissioned him to paint one of his rooms at the landmark Shah House in Juhu’s Janki Kutir, owned by Czaie and Suketu Shah (MD Mukund Iron and Steel).

His achievements also include painting four of large size paintings for Kohinoor Bungalow of ex Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri. Manohar Joshi. Furthermore, he went on to paint a large (45 ft X 9 ft) painting on the wall for Vipul Doshi at his Churchgate office.

Artist Kumar Vaidya’s work stands apart and takes your mind on an experimental and innovative journey, breaking the conventional norms and showcasing depth through his talented art strokes.

After 20 years, Kumar Vaidya is all set to comeback with the most anticipated show, ‘SUKSHM’ that will display his extraordinary piece of art to all the art lovers. The exhibition will be from 22nd March -29th March at an art gate gallery above Satyam collection, next to Eros Cinema, Churchgate, Mumbai 400020.

Partnership with Atul Unadkat:

Atul Unadkat, having a penchant for recognising unique and unconventional artistic flair, found a paragon in Kumar Vaidya with whom he shared a beautiful friendship lasting since 20 years. Atul was so fascinated by Mr. Vaidya’s prowess that he offered him to showcase his talent by painting his room in his own signature style. Impressed by his work, Atul found a companion in Mr Kumar, a soul connection that made him not only extend his hand of friendship but also back Kumar Vaidya in his future endeavours. Atul’s faith in him took them on a beautiful journey on a road less travelled, bringing to life an exceptional array of artwork. 6 years and a lot of dedication, faith & determination later, they are all set to come up with the much anticipated exhibition ‘SUKSHM’. This magnificent partnership of Kumar Vaidya & Atul is all set to bring this extraordinary piece of art live to all from 22nd March -29th March gating at an art gallery above Satyam collection, next to Eros Cinema, Churchgate, and Mumbai.
