Born in 1968, Ajay Zharotia graduated from the college of Arts, Delhi (1990). Won many awards in the fields of Advertising as Creative Director (1990-2000). He has participated in many Group shows and Art Camp. He works in the acrylic medium on canvas. The thematic figures are inspired by mythology. The muted flat ground colours juxtapose the movement of the lines of distorted forms that create the tension and feeling the catharsis.
In his won words, “Art is a language. Ever since I started opening myself to the “Prakriti” (known as Shakti or Mahamaya) my mind become visual. Every thought become a picture. Initially I stared enjoying those images but soon they become intense. The picture itself became a thought and created a visual of its own. This give birth to the endless series of imagery which continuously going on in my conciseness. And as its nature it is filled with the desire to create. My work is the series of these thought. The one, which became intense and meet the “Purusha” of my desire get manifested on the canvas.”
