Umakant Kanade



The visual language that the artist uses draws within itself discrete narratives of Nature. There are the seemingly twittering chirping conversations of birds and mother and child, hinted at in the vocabulary of nature’s very own mother tongue. The monochromatic suddenly enlivens up and the trees swoon in sing song. One could also glean the environmental issue which alienate and isolate these feathered friends from their nature; habitat into remote concretes, depriving the, of their own living. The numerous connotations of the elements of nature that Umakant employs as metaphors, sets the interpretative versatility of the works. When one observes the nuances and intricate drawings and illustrative quality of Umakant’s work, you get enchanted and walk into this timeless era of beauty and grace.
