Glimpses from Varanasi

Glimpses from Varanasi
His current works revolves around recreating the typical scene one witnesses on a Banaras Ghat, or the steps that lead down to the river. The show also provides a glimpse of Rajasthan at the same time. Oil on canvas is this artist’s favourite medium, although he has painted several water colour works as well. Sometimes a palette knife instead of the regular brushes serves as a tool in helping him to create his realistic landscapes.

His paintings shows Varanasi in all of its glory. He paints people taking dips in the river or praying and meditating on its banks, the multitude of small temples almost falling off the cliff face and the narrow streets teeming with life and activity. Shirwadkar manages to blend his colours so well in all his paintings, that we actually see the radiance from a setting or rising sun lighting up the city and transforming it into a shimmering and almost breathing, beautiful creature.

Yashwant Shirwadkar is extensively traveled and has held 92 solo exhibitions of his work across the globe. His works are also regularly included in domestic and international auctions of Indian Art, breaking records at auction houses like Sotheby’s and Christie’s.
