Few words by my Mentor

 

Ajit G Varma, alumnus of Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda, comes from a traditional artist’s family. His father Gyarsilal Varma, a master of mural techniques, was an old associate of mine and collaborated with me on various mural projects. His skills and dedication were exemplary.

Ajit too has technical side to his talent and has worked in various media – screen printing, modeling, mural design and ceramics.

He has been busy painting on canvas the last few months and his exhibition bring together some of these works. They are colorful and often crazy, collages of human figure and features. They show, in his own description, the truth of life; each one read life differently, its component and complexities. They are bound to intrigue and excite interested art viewers.

- Prof K G Subramanyan, 2012

 

 

About me and my paintings

I am proud to have legacy, which very few people have. My grandfather Shri Kanaiyalal Varma possessed unique skills of fresco art, my father Shri Gyarsilal Varma was professor at Paintings and Mural Department of Faculty of Fine Arts, M S University, Vadodara and so I have inherited their art since childhood, in addition to that I got guidance about art from Shri K G Subramanyan during my education in Fine Arts, MSU.

And so in my paintings there is influence of my teacher Shri K G Subramanyan’s composition and influence of the great artist Picasso’s color composition during my education can be seen in my paintings.

I do not let any grief or sorrow to distress me and so the figures, the subject, the composition and the color scheme in my paintings are always joyful. I have displayed 5 paintings in this class.
