Kishin Awatramani’s first solo exhibition ‘Illuminations’ has been organised at the Jehangir (Hirji) Art Gallery, Mumbai from 18th to 24th March. Each abstract painting in this exhibition is meticulously composed by complex layering of luscious hues. They exude a neat, high-wired act between movement and a Zen-like stillness.The artist’s greatest pursuit is to bring out his inner emotions through application of colors, textures and highlights. These creations provide the artist with endless potentialities enabling him an escape.
The exhibition have been inaugurated at the auspicious hands of the Chief Guest, Dr. Keki Turel, renowned Neurosurgeon and Mr. Kerul Patel, acclaimed Karate Black belt holder and TEDx speaker on 18th March, 2019.
The Mumbai based self-taught artist is a successful businessperson. 10 years ago when Kishin surrendered to his inner calling of colors, he received extensive guided training in fine arts, acquiring various artistic skills and techniques. With sheer dedication and focus, Kishin has created art every single day since then. Each painting is a whole universe within itself, alive with emotions and throbbing with elation.
