About the artist:
Born in 1975. He completed his BFA from Government College of Art, Chandigarh and MFA from College of Art, Delhi. Gurdeep says: “The very act of painting represents zooming in and zooming out of comprehensive state of mind. Generation and degeneration of pigment implies its presence in basic-formalistic abstraction. The intuitive and instinctive use of brush work shows different qualities in dynamically constructed spaces of opposites, textured versus smooth, thin versus thick, spontaneous versus deliberate, organic versus inorganic, transparent versus opaque and philosophical facts versus mysteries and scientific versus spiritual.” His works reflect philosophical, spiritual, energetic, colourful and vibrant spirit of India. He has held solo shows of his works in India, Europe and the US, and participated in group shows in Munich and Cologne in Germany, and at the Singapore Art Festival.
