Choyal, An Eminent sr.Painter Me & My Wife Kriti, My Daughter Heli and My Son Atharv Pandya Interviewing with the reporter of Times of India. Guest of Honor Dr. Abhinav Dinesh, Director, Birla Institute of Technology Inaugrated by Dr. Vidhya Sagar Upadhyaya An Eminent Artist Well, after long time I could get the time for posting some new stuff. Today I am going to publish few more photographs and newspaper cuttings of my recent exhibition of caricatures, which was held at Sukriti Art Gallery, Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur from 28th To 30th April 2009. The entire caricatures have been prepared on the current issues and completed within 15 days of time frame. Overall around 52 caricatures were displayed in the art gallery. That was really a great experience, wonder & miracle for me to complete this enormous and incredible task successfully.
“Serene Silhouette” means composed figure with outlines, I generally use lines, curves and shapes to create a caricature. It is so much fun to exaggerate the features of people, friends, political leaders, Indian gurus, eminent artists; film stars, criminals etc. distort their faces and make them look funny. I do not add any satire on anybody because it goes out of the limits of cartoon area that may hurt anybody personally. I do not want any controversies, it is neat and clean humor, just for everyone’s enjoyment. For me it is feature of personality or the subject which inspire me to make a cartoon out of it. I have made a series on expressions of Lalu Prasad Yadav and Dr. Man Mohan Singh, but I have not lost any sense of delicacy.
This exhibition was dedicated to Sri Satya Sai Baba, Who gave me so much energy and blessings during I was working for the exhibition.
