Rebellion painter. Ganesh Panda

Ganesh Panda is a rebel by nature, he accepted the challenge, stood up against the chaos and indifference that reigns in modern painting.

Painting allows expressing various emotions of the artist: joy, sadness, passion, pain, desire, with the help of painting he better understands modern society. His works are a kind of certificate of maturity, a confirmation of the artist’s ability to convey these emotions on canvas. And Ganesh Panda reached in this perfection. He is one of the most sensitive artists in the world of modern painting.

His works are the product of a stormy marriage between Ganesh Panda, the “observer” and Ganesh Panda, the “artist”, reinforced by a passion for perfection in all aspects of fine arts. Ganesha Panda is a rebel by nature, he accepted the challenge, stood up against the chaos and indifference that reigns in modern painting and tried to change the picture of the world with his works.

Somewhere in the midst of all his struggle for survival, he became part of the artistic management of an advertising agency, but having accepted the management, the table was a victim of uncertainty – an idle life began a hunt for him. Ganesh found solace in the beauty of the setting sun, in the changing autumn leaves, in the excitement of the sea, in the tranquility of the dark deserted streets, the persistence of an old sick man, and in countless moments of indifference to others. For a man living dreams, every moment is precious, every breath is sacred. He drew inspiration from such moments and soon realized that he must express his feelings in his paintings.

So, he left the illusory world of advertising, where he did everything from creating layouts of printed products to developing the design of covers for CDs, so that in 1991 he created his own studio, where he began working on a series of projects. However, he does not think that time in the advertising industry was wasted – thanks to this work the artist was able to hone his skills. From the very beginning of his career, the artist was against painting ordinary, banal paintings that used beautiful and eye-catching colors. The artist Ganesh Panda covers the whole range of human feelings, but he does not want to idealize these emotions, but on the contrary, he shows them very clearly.

Many of his works seem to be written very schematic, almost without taking into account the details. Instead of a brush, he uses a mastic, therefore, his paintings often look incomplete. This allows the viewer to fully focus on the essence of the painting. His most outstanding ability is the skilful mixing of colors, more in line with his personal point of view, while stimulating our imagination.

Women Artists of India

The women of India have always been struggled for the place in the sun and against marginalization which is obvious even in the modern society having been strict for centuries in this country. And when we talk about Indian women artists we should mention that gender issues in this sphere are even more apparent. There is discrimination concerning paintings and sculptures. Let’s look at what happens in today’s society in connection with women in Art.

Peculiarities of women art

Aside from a gender the artists should differ from each other with a unique feature. They are inspired by places, people, circumstances and express their emotions in a unique way applying their skills and talent. It is well known that most women are more sensitive and historically they have been more successful in the art world than elsewhere.

And though the artist’s gender must not influence on the market value of a picture, there are challenges which Indian women face including difficulty in selling their works and being representing in national museums. Unfortunately even in Europe the prices for pictures of female artists become a source of disappointment when they are compared with their male counterparts. Still there are very gifted and recognized women artists.

The Famous Women Artists in India

  • Amrita Sher-gil is crown jewel of the nation. We’d say that she is the most celebrated woman artist and often compared with Frida Kahlo. She got art education in Paris and admired Paul Gaugin trying to follow his techniques. When she returned to India she changed her trend and went into ancient murals. She pictures the female body trying to show is beauty in everyday life.
  • Meera Mukherjee feels expired by the folk art spending years in the village adopting traditional practices. She can be regarded as a tribal artist with her own experiments and unique imagery mixing folklore and urban art.
  • Nasreen Mohamedi shows us the world full of unusual shapes, which we do not even notice before. She is a representative of Abstract Art. In order to achieve the amazing forms she observes the object under different conditions, in the morning and at night so that she could note the slightest details and depict them using plain lines and only two colors: black and white.
  • Arpita Singh is very respectful in Indian Contemporary Art. She presents women with tongue in cheek reflecting of women fates and real life. Her paintings are bright and beautiful with unusual interpretation of emotions like roses inside the woman’s body.

Art and Pregnancy

If there are successful Indian women artists, it can be an example for other women to unlock their potential in this sphere. Are there any reasons to refuse painting connected with female health? Of course, there are some restrictions if a lady is pregnant. The point is that paints are toxic and can harm a little bit. This is the case of oil though the extent of toxicity depends on the composition and chemicals added to paints. So, if a producer is reliable, and an artist wears protective clothing including masks working in the properly ventilated area and uses water colors or acrylic laying aside oil paints, then the danger is minimum or even absent.

As to the rest issues art is very helpful for reducing depression, improving mood and treating the diseases connected with heart or nerves. In general, the traditional medicine recommends the engagement in art activity of different kinds to gain self-confidence, calm and enjoyment.
