“Nature is an integral part of every living being. Artists have always derived inspiration from nature. It is the motivation as nature is the ultimate truth. In today’s world a lot of study and research is continuously being done on nature.
Who is the creator of this beautiful nature? The vivid shapes and ever-changing and enchanting unique Colours in nature are in synchronization with changing seasons and are surprising and breath-taking. This is the ultimate phenomenon that inspires me to discover minute wonders of nature and try sincerely and persistently to reproduce it on my canvas.
Nature is unpredictable. It follows its own will and it is sometimes soothing and turbulent at other times. Artists admire it because of its sincerity and sanctity. There is a certain depth and transparency in it which he tries to reproduce in the art,” says the renowned artist Shrikant Kadam.
“I try to transform nature through my imagination and portray it in a special manner”.
Shrikant Kadam believes that the thinking process along with the technique is very important in creating a near-to-real replica of nature. For the past 19 years, he has been working on the series “Nature” and has been trying to unveil the secrets of nature.
“I first made a communication with the space on canvas, I tried to feel the canvas and observe it. And at the spur of moment my inner soul inspires me to a particular colour and that leads me to the discrete statement of art for the day. Colours bring the shapes and sometimes shapes bring the colours on the canvas”.
