Dinesh V Revankar - Artist

The Artist

Dinesh Revankar studied Applied Art at the prestigious Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art in Mumbai. His favourite technique is the dry brush and he has a passion for colours, which he uses to blend beautifully and recreate wonderful real life sense.


Artist's statement

Africa is about the land of wildlife, mammals, reptiles and birds - the cradle of life on this planet. African people bond with the wildlife - varying from huge mammals like elephants, hippos and rhinoceroses through to the big cats: lions, leopards and cheetahs, to more than 2,000 species of birds.

As a visual artist I indulge with this kind of habitat on a day to day basis. This is really fascinating. I am a surrealist artist; I create images from nature which are diverse and I try to keep simplicity in my artworks. I use oil on canvas and sometimes mixed media, depending on the nature of the subject.

Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.
