About

Viveek Sharma - Untitled - 18 inches Diameter or 45.72 cm Diameter (unframed size) Oil on canvas Inclusive of shipment in roll form. About the work : Mysticism of the blue God, look like Shiva, sadhu, ascetic, spiritual by Contemporary Artist Viveek Sharma who grew up in Allahabad. Artist Viveek Sharma grew up in Allahabad with its sadhus and witnessed many Kumbh Melas, where people come, from all over India and the world, to seek answers to these questions (Why are we on earth?) and make some sense of our existence, our frail humanity and its little joys and woes.  His sadhus look like Shiva, the original ascetic himself, as they go forth through mysterious states of awareness, making visible their experiences of ecstasy, distress, many pitfalls, altered states of perception, powers and finally reaching the promised land, the sahasrar and far beyond. Style : Viveek Sharma may be considered one of India's greatest artists for, even from a young age; his work was powerful and exquisite. Highly skilled at his craft, he takes great care to create one more shadow, one subtle variation, for beautiful, astounding effects. his paintings may be seen again and again, with new rewarding discoveries : fine shades in a face, human skin, exquisitely done strands of hair and expert realism as when he juxtaposes a 'Sadhu' next to granite temples. The temples look exactly as they are, under shadow or with Sunlight on their ancient stones. Sharma shows the world of spirit, slowly. Sharma's work uses realism and pointillism but in a very unusual way with myriad colours, soft, larger dots, possibly hundreds, over a tiny area. While his art is visually stunning, its real reach is emotional and spiritual. Anyone from any faith on a spiritual quest will notice the stories and understand the experiences depicted in this great powerful body of work. He said, "without years, without time, without patience to achieve perfection, you may just come and go". About the Artist and his work : Born : 1968,Mumbai.
