Aniket Khupse’s sensitive lines and multiple layers constantly shuffle the viewer between various tenses – past, present and future. In his images, made up of people and situations, Khupse freezes his focal content in the present while the many layers, above and below; maintain a fluid representation between past and future.

His colors are transparent and his lines meander carefully within his frame. While darker blotches of paint create a sense of depth, the more watered down pigments appear as sheer layers over the surface. Khupse’s formal training in portraiture becomes evident in fine lines drawn with obvious conviction.

    Aniket Khupse’s sensitive lines and multiple layers constantly shuffle the viewer between various tenses – past, present and future. In his images, made up of people and situations, Khupse freezes his focal content in the present while the many layers, above and below; maintain a fluid representation between past and future.

    His colors are transparent and his lines meander carefully within his frame. While darker blotches of paint create a sense of depth, the more watered down pigments appear as sheer layers over the surface. Khupse’s formal training in portraiture becomes evident in fine lines drawn with obvious conviction.

    Aniket – “Depth of transparencies “

    I am quite inspired by the medium of watercolors and it's unique language. So many hidden forms speak through the layers of color and their transparencies. My primary subject has evolved from ‘Tantra of life’. As I’ve been living in a metro so I experience and engage with many people. I try and learn their responsibilities, their source of enjoyment and relationships. I depict the stories of the common man in my paintings. One of painting is from ‘ Yoga series', in which the male figure is balancing the lotus on his head while standing in the water. This shows the bonding of the female lotus and the man. My paintings are this about the bonds we create.
