Vikash Kalra, born in Delhi in 1973, is a self-taught artist. When he started his journey as a painter, he was not aware about the outcomes and his perspective of understanding paintings was different from the results he got. He first painted his thoughts and feelings but with a passage of time, he found out that he was also trying to express himself and his surroundings. With painting, Vikash has inclined towards spirituality. In the event of any illusion, he takes refuse in art which opens him to clarity on things and new possibilities in life. For him, paintings are a medium of telling stories and this is one thing he aims for. He looks for the emotions and energy more than the subjects. He looks to catch the emotions and allow the viewer to connect with those emotions. His practicing yoga and meditation also gives him energy for doing brush strokes more efficiently. Known for his fluid, abstract paintings and sculptures, Vikash Kalra explores difficult themes in his works. He counts masters such as Pablo Picasso and F.N. Souza amongst his early influences. The artist’s works have been widely exhibited across India and are held in several private and corporate collections. He lives and works in New Delhi.
