After finishing college and being exposed to the elements of the real world, my understanding of art has undergone a huge transformation. I have always been interested in human forms, and the kind of extension it finds and flows in its surroundings.

The face and figures that inhabit these spaces are rusted, dirty, and filled with hope and despair. The various emotional shades that they carry with them, a certain sense of colour, are what I try to capture in its essence and bring into my work. To be able to handle and arrange the multiplicity of this whole experience, to paint this never ending landscape where people stumble into, pass-through, and interact with is what excites me, and this is what I feel I am going to pursue for my creations.

I want to recreate forms – solid and compressed; full of dents made from the encounter with the time. Like a tiny stone, even its tininess is a unique example of the development of whole universe. When you see a man, you also see forgotten ancestors of it, the prehistoric history of making it. The realm, hidden under the surfaced realm is extremely compressed like a black hole. Though this idea is too abstract for me to draw, I try to compensate by drawing in the shape of known forms around me.

A thought seems a solid object to me, one that you can touch and smell. Even a feather has a weight that we can measure. A space has a mass that surrounds us. Every abstract has its expanded form. Even in the dump of deep subconscious, old forgotten memories seem so dense and solid that existing reality looks viscous in comparison. I want to bring such density of thought into my paintings.

    Nitin Kushwaha: His artworks Echoes Through Viewers Mind!

    Nitin Kushwaha while interacting with Team Mojarto quoted- 'Since childhood I have been drawing, mostly I was interested in drawing, comics and animation. Even in college, I have spent most of my time sketching, I would lie on the station for days and sketch like crazy, filling bundles of newspapers. That passion of sketching has been there since then and remains even now. Painting is a problem for me because to attempt to understand the world, my surroundings and the incidents are a challenge to explain. The way we react to things how do I express in a sketch, painting or drawing? And how do I communicate all of this to others? How will they perceive it? I don't like sending a message through painting, neither do I like to symbolize anything through my messages. I am also not happy telling people why I did paint what I did. But throughout this journey, the notion of collective subconsciousness should be reflected in my work. And I hope that it echoes throughout my work, and then reaches the viewer. The message shouldn't end when you look away, instead, it's impact should continue to linger in one's mind after leaving the work'.
