Artist creates his own imagery based on his visual experiences through various mediums. Observation and thought process play a key factor for any kind of visual creation. Creation surely does not follow any specific rule and it is beyond any limits. An artist expresses his account in his own chosen form that is unique and a subject to appreciate. This is exactly what Akshay Puri – an artist from Delhi – has done in his ongoing exhibition, 'World of Rhythm', at the Lalit Kala Akademi.
This one-man exhibition of creative photographs which is on display at Rabindra Bhawan until March 8 for the art lovers to admire, is about his love for dance form and nature. Here he narrates his photographic story emerging through forms related to dance placed in an environment of dynamics of nature. It is a delight for viewers as his experiment with rhythm creates a balance and both forms supplement each other to express his understanding of his photographic aspiration.
The artist was born in 1982 in a family where art was in daily practice. Akshay was trained in photography under well-known photographer Shree O.P. Sharma, at Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi. He has dedicated his creative spirit in learning and exploring possibilities in photography more than twenty years and held many solo and group exhibitions showcasing his experimental photographic presentations in monochrome as well as in colour.
