One wouldn’t be too off the mark to think that India’s soul can be found in its villages. Indian villages have a pristine beauty to it that’s simply riveting and if you are looking for something that captures the very essence of an Indian village, Nagesh Ghodke’s abstract village scapes would be spot on.
Nagesh Ghodke is a young artist who has made his presence felt with his astounding art themed on villages of India. He has now started to create ripples in the international art scene as well. He is widely professed by art critics and connoisseurs as the one of the most promising young talent to come out of India and whose work will greatly appreciate in value in the future.
Nagesh hails from a suburban village near Mumbai and he now lives in Mumbai. He did his Bachelors in art from the well acclaimed L.S. Raheja School of Art, Bandra, Mumbai but his Artistic streak was well nurtured and encouraged when he was in Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Latur, Maharashtra.
