Nagesh is popular for his villagescapes and finds his muse in ever changing nature. His geographical and cultural upbringing has largely inspired his work. Having grown up in a village, he uses his work as a medium to depict the beauty and aesthetics of a rural scene but at the same time utilises his work to bring to light the destruction of nature and the resulting plight of villagers. His most prominently used medium is acrylic. His colour palette consists of greens, blues and reds each setting a mood in his paintings.
