Srikant Lalasaheb Kadam

Srikant Lalasaheb Kadam

When I look back at my art journey, it started with realistic art and later it turned into abstract art. Nature has been my inspiration and the change of season brings a palette of textures and the light variants, naturally occurring sounds making the vibrations change too. These observations and changes of nature take me to a different level and I constantly wonder and get into the depth of nature to get more ideas and motivations. My constant desire is to hunt and get more experience with nature, and that is my palette of spontaneity. When one stands at the peak of the mountain and experience the infinite firmament, that is what my paintings are all about. The freedom of strokes is my creativity and ingenuity. I try to transform nature through my imagination and portray it in my special manner, making it a treasure of mystery, secrets, and beauty. I constantly try to assimilate things like size, space, image, texture, and colors as they state my thoughts on canvas, this unending treasure of nature and me. This dialogue takes me places to deliver new shapes and forms, the seen and unseen colors of nature and surroundings. The fresh and pleasant colors in nature motivate me. In abstract paintings, as colors play an important part, and when I start to paint, I first communicate with the space on canvas and try to make a connection with it, observe it and at the spur of the moment my inner soul inspires me to paint a particular color, and that leads me to the discrete statement of art for the day. Colors lead to the shapes and some time shapes bring the colors on the canvas. The colors run through the canvas the art starts interacting with me and guides me where to stop. I trail with them and always try to paint with what I have experienced from life, that gives me the joy of connecting to that divine, lucid, and uncompromising bliss. It also helps in strengthening my coloration, without the direct imitation of nature, where I try to find my soul of nature, at the same time self-realization too. A formless nature with the divine feeling….
