Mandke – An artist’s statement
Mandke is a celebrated senior artist from India. His works are on a permanent display at both, Lalit Kala Academy and National Gallery of Modern Art as well as some top-notch corporates. The power of Mandke's works literally blows your mind while taking your breath away. Each piece accosts all your senses. The colours are vibrant, the strokes bold & the message crystal clear. The effect is almost hypnotic. Mandke's confidence, brilliance and skill emanates from each piece. He is gloriously uninhibited in expressing his thoughts. These days, it is rare to find an artist who paints from the heart & not for the audience. Mandke’s works are almost like story-telling in its effect on the viewer. The positivity and energy arrests the viewer. It revolves around mysticism and mysteries of human mind and forces you to look inward in search of the treasures that lay within. His application of joyful colours is exhilarating and the energy infectious. The subtle feelings exuded by Mandke’s paintings make you see something new in them every day, making viewing them a wondrous experience.
Finally, it will be a privilege to own a MANDKE……!!!
