Bio / Resumee / Statement:
Sudhir lives in Chittaranjan Park, New Delhi, India. Born in 1953, he spent his childhood in Orissa, India, often in small idyllic towns. He never went to school. He studied at home, fervently reading up on everything he stumbled into. He painted, listened to music or spent the entire day outdoors discovering the magic world outside. His friends were the common people he met everyday, in the many neighbourhoods and towns he lived in. His sensibilities were shaped by these experiences, without the rigid discipline of school.
In late 2005, after a career as a graphic designer, he took up painting full-time. It is the spontaneous experience of his early days juxtaposed with the complexities of the metropolis that gives shape to his compelling visuals, today. His subjects are always the common people -- a rickshawpuller, groups at street corners, the mendicant singer, and the woman passing by.
In his paintings, Sudhir captures the vignettes of real life in his own medium without any embellishment. It is this simplicity of style that defines his work. There is no attempt to impose an external structure, or to interpret the situation with any preconceived norms. It is the subject that is central; the canvas is only a medium for it to be presented.
Sudhir has exhibited at group shows at the Urusvati Art Gallery (2006) and Galleria (July 2007 and August 2008) both at Vasant Vihar, New Delhi. In April 2009 he had his first solo show at the Arpana Caur Gallery, Academy of Fine Arts & Literature in New Delhi. In August 2009 he exhibited at the Gallery Romain Rolland, Alliance Francaise, in New Delhi. In November 2009 he was part of a group show at the Arpana Caur Gallery, Academy of Fine Arts & Literature in New Delhi.
Sudhir’s paintings are on display at well-known online art galleries and are part of many collections in India and abroad.
