About the artist:
Born in 1984 in Delhi, Gurmeet completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting followed by Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the College of Art, Delhi. His works are based on narratives at two levels – the personal and the societal. The images are sarcastic expressions that have their origin in deeply felt emotions. The heart, the crown, the jars, the soda bottles, the donkey, the owl, and the cow are amongst the various symbols that he presents in his works. The series depicts examples of human behavior and interactions as satire, using animals as metaphors. He works in different mediums like charcoal, acrylic, oil, watercolour, lithograph, etching, linocut, and his personal favorite – woodcut. The usage of colour, especially red, makes the central idea of the art works even more salient. Gurmeet has held several group and solo shows.
