Paintings of Manoj Darekar

















Profile of Manoj Darekar

Manoj Darekar

Location: Pune

My artworks are based on a phenomenon called ‘Pareidolia’, which is a psychological phenomenon that causes people to see patterns in a random stimulus. We all communicate with ourselves in different ways, similarly I do so with the help of different forms of faces! These faces depend on my emotions, if I’m in a relaxed environment I see calm and peaceful faces conversely, furious faces when I’m not. Hence, my artworks often rely on my mood. I spend a lot of time recollecting old memories as they act as a magical world from where I find inspiration for my artworks.
