Hindol Bramhbhatt

Baroda, India

Hindol Brahmbhatt was born in 1974. He received his BFA and a Post Diploma in painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S.U, and Baroda. Hindol’s artistic process revolves around attainment of thematic and stylistic unity. Its broad objective is to form a language that calls for continuity and intuition. His technique of starting a painting with an image in photographic emulsion, and later adding acrylic, shellac, clay, sand etc. to build textures of incredible variety and sensitivity, and in the process, unpacking mythic pathos and historical ironies. His work resonates with an outward simplicity of the subject matter that subtly hides and progressively heightens inherent complexity of the message and the drama that the artist wants to convey. Hindol Brahmbhatt recreates and relocates the known and the imagined visual references and fills them with alternative meanings. He chooses to distill his visual vocabulary to the minimum for the maximum effect. He treats his work as a documentation of historical reality in contemporary context and looks for clues of social changes. Thus emerges a universe that the viewers can identify from a new perspective. He has had several solo and group shows of his works.
