Born in Kolkata 1986, Viraag Desai completed his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and has shown widely shown in USA & India. A recipient of Merit scholarships during his tenure at art school, he went on to do residencies in Spain and other parts of India, as well as shows in galleries in the US, Spain, Shanghai, Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. While in art school, he studied the techniques and aesthetics of traditional art styles, combining their iconography with modern themes. Later, he moved towards a type of abstract expressionism, striking hard at the conventional notions of propriety in form, using spray-guns, acrylics, polyurethane gel, and pigment dispersions. Viraag refers to mechanical forms as a point of departure, depicting chaotic arrangements of flora and fauna, and figures from various militant/historical scenes. Often he uses the traditional technique of hand-dyeing his canvasses to reinforce his depictions of life in isolated rural landscapes. He uses found objects along with traditional art materials and created media. Appropriation of these materials and techniques result in cinematic glimpses of his personal contemporary voice. This set of 6 small paintings done with acrylic, resin, rice-paper, fabric on canvas, reflect upon cities that both encroach on human life and are encroached upon by humans.
