Bhati is a prolific Visual Artist and works and lives in New Delhi. And in them invariably, or often enough, the artist is glued to the lot of what is the common humanity of or the down and under. So that countries like India provide him much expressive material. The waifs that he pointedly paints are everyday sight but usually ignored by the passer-by. Here, the artists as a de-sensitive being try their best to provoke thought and feeling in the indifferent citizen. Bhati is not didactic rather he is ironic. And this irony is welcome in the repertoire art, which is not only about ‘beauty’ as popularly understood, but also with the trophy of the human heart even in the so-called high living. Bhati’s Figural work, based in the commonplace everyday environs, also variety and some subtlety, which contributes to our understanding of ongoing life. The line is accompanied by tones of shading, even as the artist strives to suggest mass and anatomical vigour. So the compositions are not mere painterly renderings of the photographic lens eye.
