“I started my journey by learning simple sketches. Wherever I am; I would make sketches and put my imagination into it. Although being a self-taught artist, I still strive to perfect my art and master it.
To me it is as though I am communicating my thoughts on canvas. I quote and believe that being an artist “we have the power to see the world differently”
He passionately states “Sketching is everything to me. In terms of colors, Black being my favorite, I also work and explore with other shades. I am inspired from day to day life and draw many paintings of architecture in abstract. I enjoy portraying my imagination through various mediums as it feels rewarding and I get to be adventurous in my work”.
“My latest theme is called Imagination from the Divinity series. My intention was to create a contemporary art series on divinity using ancient times history. So I combined lots of architectural details of temples and abstract art forms. The main inspiration were the temples which are our Indian ancient heritage”.
“We have the power to see the world differently” Mrinal Dutt
“Each of my painting took me many weeks to create and months to prepare. I started by creating the base and background, then applying paint directly on canvas. The rough outlines were drawn over with marker. Once this was completed, I would use ink and finish it off with acrylic paint. The life that takes form in front of my very own eyes can never be put into words when I am in my element”.
“This entire series are on Imagination as replicas of temples.The beauty is that, although it’s fiction, it makes you believe that such places really do exist. Each of these stretched canvas are created using acrylic colours and are sized at 36′ by 58’inch.
