P. Yogeesh Naik
Growing up in a small village i had always been a part of a quiet beautiful life, but also saw problems that small villages generally faced.
I had then decided to choose a field where i could express my self to the society. With Inspiration and help from commercial artist k.Purandar ,working with him,I realized my love and attraction towads the art field.
In my college days in cava i worked on three themes interior texture and mime.
Post college i decided to continue working with the mime theme because i felt it was a strong expression of the society. It all started when i used to go to rangayana, a place for cultural and art center in mysore,where dramas were staged .These dramas left a strong impact in my mind. The dramas that conveyed the social problem left an urge in me to express the problems of the society. I felt my brush could be a strong as the electronic and print media in conveying message to the society.
Expression and drama was all that i know i started working on the mime theme the dramatic effect that was created was to be simple and strong enough to convey my message to the people. As the initial interest was to create drama my canvas, during the post college period, i slowly started to shift towards the city life that i saw during my college days. The contrast of my quite village life to this startling reality of the city was that i wanted to express.
The major root urban problem that i realized in the five years of stay in Mysore was population.
The relationship between the body moment and expression is what creates drama in the mind which i have depicted in my painting.
The dramatic relation that is created between the minimum line and flat block color result is a painterly quality and lot of challenges to face .yes It was a challenge to express thoughts using minimum colours.
I have also been inspired by the ‘’Lambani’’ form of tribal art of Karnataka, which uses lots of patterns and designs in crowded manner.The same is seen in my paintings where figures are hudled or lots of figures are scattered all around on the canvas.
In few of my painting i have used colorful objects to show worldly pressures and the modern world.They depict lust and green past of the man due to which he forgets more beautiful entity relationship.The black colour represents the darkness of life or rather the dark parts of life which man refuses to see.The skeleton of man’s feelings are shown in black and white in my painting.
This relationship, humanity is forgotten in the run for these worldly pleasures.
The faces represent a mask beyond which ones true identity is hidden the funny gestures and the drama present a lot more than what is seen at faced.
My work reveals inner questions of mine which stands in the form of raised issues in world around me within a made framework of imagination executed through the satirical images.
The figures in their delicate , sly and playful world are almost invariably focused on an event , animated by a mutual curiosity , pointing out something that is odd , incongruous or comically bizarre.
For the viewer the wit resides as much in the scale of the depictions as it does in the finely summarized telling detail of the vignette.
I have often played with my childhood memories , and tried to reinsert them into my contemporary experience along with amalgamated version of social realities and their political context for instance poverty , identity crisis , dilemma of relationships and of all lose of human values which are generally born out of population explosion and psychological phenomena of modern society.
