“There is no wonder that an impeccable artist dips his brush in his soul and paints his own nature into his artworks – this statement by HW. Beecher rings true in case of our renowned artist who is here to mesmerize you with his style of work, the pride of India, none other than Vijender Sharma -a very few amid the Indian artists who can illustrate life on the canvas through his magical strokes.
With a remarkable flair for art, he also has an incredible zeal to work and portray manifold subjects on the canvas. No wonder that is the reason he is constantly rising and shining in his life. The themes chosen by him are commonplace but powerful.
Love, death, devoutness, corruption, pretense are some of his chosen subjects to work upon. The artist has over time gained insights about human relationships and an understanding of humans with his environs. He adheres to realist-naturalist mode of representation in his paintings with an efficacy towards administering the core idea in a way which is a treat to watch for the onlookers,” Nipun Soin, curator shares the artist’s inimitable style of portraying through his traditional mediums of oil, acrylic and new innovative methods of modern day.
“His works are based on his life experiences. This is the key reason why we see his works interacting with the audiences and telling them a never heard before tale.
Vijender Sharma is possibly one of the most brilliant exponents of the genre of photorealism in India. Excellence in this form demands an extremely high level of skill of both eye and hand, and a rigorous schooling. The significant thing however is not his great virtuosity but that thus transcends mere academism with a satirical world view which is very much his own.
Vijendra Draws his strength not from style but his handling of the medium and content – His language is simple but his manner of utterance only proves that it is simple to be simple. He must be judged on his own terms,” says Nipun Soin.
Vijender Sharma has conducted many solo and group exhibitions. He has received many awards including Sahitya Kala Parishad Award, Pandit Ravi Shankar Award, New Delhi, AIFACS(1st Prize) Painting, Raja Ravi Varma Samman, Mumbai.
He has contributed his paintings for T.V Serials and movies like B.R Chopra’s Mahabharata and Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayana.
His paintings adorn many galleries in India and abroad including in the UK, USA, Dubai, Japan, Denmark, Paris, Sweden, Singapore, Australia, France and Italy.
