Pramod Prakash

The central theme of my work is “self introspection”. i pay special emphasis on highlighting this. other aspect that you will seein my works are “nature and society”.my concepts are guided by my father and our life in my nativevillage. he was a freedom fighter as well as a social reformer. for myfather, his country, society and village was predominant. the rightsand dues owed to them was something that my father fought forthroughout his life.my village was an example of typical zamindari system. zamindarsruled village with social and economic and sexist subjugation.religion and gods were used by zamindars to promote the dogmasof oppression.my father, used to migrate to various places to earn his livelihood. iused to miss him when he was away. but he migrated in search oflivelihood for us. it wasn’t just my father who migrated , the storywas the same for the entire village. almost all of the workforce inmy village migrated to cities like mumbai, delhi, surat, kolkata andespecially to punjab in search of livelihood. missing my father in mychildhood had an impact, thus migration became an emotionalsubject for melife in the city had similar vulnerabilities as life in the village.oppression by zamindars were replaced by oppression by the factoryowners or owners of business where they worked. i saw the toll ofmigration and oppression first hand. anyone who migrated for work,came back with serious ailments, their bodies showing the signs ofworking in harsh and demanding conditions. these were the peoplewho had no choice between “existing and surviving”. in addition totheir tussle to earn their livelihood, migration was also in search fortheir identity, self and sexual identity.migration means “a moving home”. economic well-being is animportant factor that is responsible for other activities like migration.struggle has its own beauty. every struggle in your life shapes youinto the person you become. i try to bring to life the “struggle”through paint. struggle has its own dimension, i have tried toshowcase the different aspects of “struggle”.
