From Jaipur Rajasthan, artist Supriy Sharma was born and brought up in a village nearby Jaipur. His works depict the peaceful atmosphere and sparkling colors of Rajasthan’s villages, ponds, and traditional dresses, as well as the lifestyle of the local people.
Sharma’s paintings depict village life in various mediums such as acrylic, pen and ink, pencil on canvas, paper or ply board. From a young age, the artist loved to draw on surfaces such as walls, paper, patios and trees. He was transfixed by his local culture, with his visual focal point being the nature and people he could see every day. This inspiration can still be located in his recent work, where this iconography not only pays homage to his youth, but also allows the artist to relieve the depression, tension and hesitation in his life. By depicting good memories from his life, Sharma is able to develop confidence and think freely about the natural world and our inner souls.
Supriy Sharma was born in India in 1985. In 2008 and 2010, he received his BFA and MFA in Painting from the Rajasthan School of Art. He has held solo shows around India since 2014, and has participated in group exhibitions since 2011 in galleries such as Alliance Francaise Gallery (New Delhi, India), Jawahar Kala Kendra (Jaipur, India), ICA Art Gallery (Jaipur), and Lalit Kala Academy (New Delhi, India) amongst more.
