biography

Ramesh Jhawar

Born : 1978

I am a watercolourist from the rich, vibrant land of Rajasthan and culturally ecstatic Tamilnadu- this mix is evident in my art as well. A realistic artist, I play with light and shades depicting the everyday life look dreamy and surreal. Being a self-taught artist has helped me evolve an individual style rather than fetter me into one school. My journeys and meanderings help me narrate my artistic tales. There is never a dearth of subjects for me as I am constantly inspired with one thing or the other. Passionate as I am, I love being part of a community that spreads cheer with brush and palette. My experiences have enriched me, not only as a person but also as an artist. I want my art to speak for itself rather than give an explanation for it, obviously that is the best way to judge an art.
