ABOUT THE ARTIST

Devidas Dharmadhikari was born in Pandharpur, Maharashtra in 1972. He obtained his PhD in Art (painting) from the Kolhapur Institute of Art.

 

Well known for his horse paintings, Devidas is a figurative artist who has worked with various mediums, including oil, acrylic, pastels, and watercolors, throughout his 15-year artistic career. Acrylics on canvas are his preferred medium for most of his paintings.

 

Like many other artists, poets, and writers, Devidas found his muse in steel. The only thing that has real form on his canvas is his subjects; horses. Everything else is abstract. He often paints two horses in contrasting tones (black and white or brown and white) in his works. These colors complement and contrast each other, the yin to the other's yang, both incomplete without the other. The running horses in Devidas Dharmadhikari's paintings are a metaphor for life: people often stand still in one place, tied to chains, unwilling or unable to free themselves, mistaking their bonds for the sash.

 

The artist paints horses, mostly running and galloping, perhaps in open fields. He focuses on the horses' postures and their muscle strength. The flowing mane and raised hooves portray the movement of the horses as if the artist had frozen these animals in the air, to capture the perfect moment.

 

Over the years, Devidas has exhibited his works in numerous art exhibitions in many Indian and international cities including Mumbai, Bengaluru, New Delhi, Chennai, London, New York, and San Francisco. He also received First Price at the V.V. Oak Exhibition, Pune.
