About the artist
Born in 1974, Om Swami is a Mumbai-based artist who studied at Raheja College. He is a self-taught artist whose works are renowned for their fluidity and the movements of its subjects. Om’s paintings showcase human emotions like love and sensuality with bold, thick strokes thus evoking a deep emotional response in the viewer. In his figurative works where no movement is depicted, one takes one look at the subject & can feel the energy within the painting. The ‘She’ highlighted in his paintings, to an extent is a comprehensive revision of certain traditional aspects, the archaic women, which has been in the human imagination for a long period of time. His name is associated with paintings with rich imagery, well conceived theme and diligently executed vibrant colors. Though figurative, but contemporary, he has cultivated a style of his own using minimal details. Omswami has held many solo and group shows within India and abroad.
