About the artist
Born in 1986. Nandan’s works are an extension of and run parallel to his experiences in life as well as draw upon his many travels. His works linger in the realm between what the artist desires and that which is reality. Theatrically grand and beautifully detailed characters from fables and folklore past are juxtaposed in a strangely comforting, lyrical and serene interaction. The fine spiral pattern drawing inter-relates all the elements in the painting giving it a unique complexity. His visual language reflects his background in textile design, especially the patterns that resemble the texture of fabric. His works feature bursts of colour amid a stark black-and-white painting; he attributes it to a fascination with certain colours.
