“I learnt there was more truth in black and white. Should you care to see my creations with feeling’s eyes, you will find the colour of fire in the spirit of my paintings, the colour of dreams in my strokes, the many hues and shades of passion bring to life my creations.” Ajay De.
Ajay’s charcoal paintings greet one with stunning effect due to the sheer magic of the medium and his control involving the deft use of fingers, thumb and even the palm. His use of light is masterful, the mood of the work is evocative and his portraits contain enigmatic subjects. With the passing years, Ajay De has been able to find his home in this medium, expanding the frontiers and experimenting with acrylic, adding a dash of colour to his works.
