Geometric shapes, the use of different textures and the cool colours give the painting a sophisticated feel. Inspired by the textures of nature and the geometric shapes of the buildings that he grew up around in the village, it is a painting that draws the eye to it again and again.

Clifftops with white Cycladic houses and the crystal blue waters of the sea- this digital art print, Santorini is designed to swoop your imagination away into Greece.

Rahul Mhetre’s deft brushwork and expert use of colour is evident in his artwork, The Uncaged.

The sensitivity and romance of the saxophone calls out to you from Pol Ledent’s Saxyfolly. The clever use of texture, the almost mirror-like feel of the artwork and the skillful use of colours gives the viewer the feeling of watching the musician from outside a window. The ability of this self-taught artist to evoke the beauty in moments of daily life is apparent in this rendition.
The almost caricatured ample bodies of the women, the magnified use of jewellery, the intricate detailing of the designs on the saris stamps Narahari Bhawandla’s Women With Parrot with his trademark rustic and vivid artistic style. Immense attention to detail, masterful brushstrokes against an almost bare background makes this artwork a brilliant visual commentary of life in the Telangana region.
