Self-taught New Delhi artist Shivender is inspired by nature. His canvases are the result of his visualization and observation of the world around him: people, objects, and nature. As a result, these works combine imagination with spirituality and emotion, capturing a moment in an attempt to convey the artist’s feelings and sensations to viewers. As Shivender says, his pieces are suspended in time, each a capsule of the past, what he's learning in the present, and a preview of the future.
Shivender is particularly interested in beauty, expression and color, and seeks to achieve a perfection of harmony by finding the best way to present a subject. For this reason he tends to work in series, exploring a single subject in different perspectives and hues, first in charcoal and then in acrylic. This work is a unique combination of the conscious and the unconscious, incorporating both to create what Shivender himself describes as “a sense of visual mystery” that intrigues the viewer and invites us to explore his pictures in greater detail.
