About the artist
Pratap SJB Rana succumbed to his heart’s desire and left a thirty-year career in the corporate sector to put brush to canvas. His works are influenced by his origins in Nepal and tenures across South East Asia and Sri Lanka. The use of bold colours reflects his passion for life, while the layering and play of brushstrokes bring out subtle nuances and rhythm. His paintings are rich in texture and depth and have a minimal approach to the subject, which is used to anchor attention. His deliberate attempt to use simple forms and vivid backgrounds compels the viewer to reflect, abstract and then delve into the concept. His works are spread over a wide spectrum of thematic interpretations of all that touches his soul.
