Deo Prasad’s acrylics rush forth in smoky veritas, splaying textures and marking authenticity. A self-taught painter, Prasad uses acrylics with a distinct mastery. Depicting what many may consider to be ordinary people and everyday situations, Prasad draws out the beauty and foundational grace of a river bank in Shades of Blue or the delicate elegance of an old woman tending to a teapot in A Lady With Her Teapot. Rural allure comes alive in Prasad’s paintings using techniques of the Dutch masters of realism to depict scenes of the quotidienne in the high villages of Northern India.
Prasad lives and works in the northern mountain town of Sikkim, India.
