My name is Pallav Chander and I am an actor, playwright and artist. I was diagnosed with dyslexia in 1999 and since then, my artistic pursuits were confirmed and strengthened. Interestingly enough, I could not read a short poem in class but I could read and remember huge monologues from the plays I acted in.
I treat my canvas like a stage and my stage like a canvas. To involve both theatre and art and meld them smoothly excites me. Most of the work I do in theatre too has to do with art and artists’ lives. The difference between my art and theatre performances is that while I can show the rage and the frustration on stage, I hold these in check in my art. The frustration is still there, but I control it. In my paintings, viewers will see funny figurative art, where the figures will look like they’re holding back a secret, like they don’t want the real message to slip out. In fact, I use bright colours in my works to show my darkest moments. One can see a progression in my colour palette, from 2012 to now. The use of black and white and the hands motif feature in the happier “chapters”.
