About Me

Aditya Dev was born on 1967, India. His works are imagery, individualized and spontaneous, which represent a pictorial from of language with poetic metaphors. He maintain very balanced trapeze with several roles - an emotional poet and an adventurous painter, all converge in degrees that are apparent to those who care to see beyond mere surface. The result is definitely very far away from any ones imagination.
The self-taught artist sketches his characters in such a whimsical position looking perfectly mingled with each other and it emerges an array of thoughts putting a new dress-up around the characters. His infinite permutations of images bring forth a unheard sequences of emotions and delight.
Aditya Sharmas brush strokes render the reality into incredible making us realize his achievement on human emotions and feelings and create a similar effect without taking benefit of any developed technology to point out a new way of paint. The various tones of colours brushing layers on layers evoke a thick stroke that is his spontaneity.
The series “Khel Ke Beech Mein” he starts with conscious steps to look at himself and his surroundings from secret vantage positions but slowly, he allows himself to go with the flow only to discover that he is actually floating! It is this freedom that catches sensitively of his heart. Here the choice of colours takes a turn from spiritually yellow and vibrant red to hazy blue and transparent brown. The texture takes on gentler tone as they meld seamlessly to create images that are starkly sensual as they are passionate.
According to Pranav Kumar Vandyopadhyaya, Aditya as an artist know the depth of feelings, he know the process, where he goes below the earth which is either frigid or volatile. He knows his inner world that gives him a series of journey is possible between the points of nothingness. In black and white Aditya talks of the origin of mind. The painter draws the movement of sound through its unknown origin. It seems to be unending.
A poet continuously de-constructs the words to construct something new and different. Something beyond the reach of ordinary language. All that demands a painting also. That is the confidence, while he enjoy in painting the possibility of discovering a form beyond the observed form and a pattern beyond the apparent patterns. That gives him a self rewarding situation from where he can look forward to another canvas.
