Prakash Deshmukh

Prakash Deshmukh’s love for the pristine and the innocent is what gathers form on his canvases. These qualities are personified as characters in his canvases. He sees the innocence in the heart of a girl. He captures boldly her sentiments, expressions and body language in varying personas that range from the mythical to the mystical. His references are girls in Indian folklore and the enchanting duo of Radha-Krishna. He is heavily influenced by the colour palette and structure of an era bygone but manages to successfully recreate them in a modern and contemporary manner.

His paintings have an almost lyrical quality which stands delicately exposed in the dancing eyes of his damsels, the fluttering leaves and the tender flora that surround his characters. The colours he chooses to use are and soft and serene, enveloping their central character contributing to her mood. The demure girls and couples with their lovely eyes, their sharp features look as though in a trance, caught in the moment. In capturing this lyrical spectacle on canvas lies Prakash Deshmukh’s success as an artist.
