Defined forms that overlap and emerge from one other, textured surface, busy brushstrokes and art that exuberates fullness are some of defining features of Inderjeet Grover’s paintings which will be on view in a solo exhibition at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai from June 21-27. Bollywood actress Nikita Rawal and Aashtha Rawal inaugurate art exhibition. Other guests who were present at the event were Rajiv Kasat and actress Satyamvada Singh Mahendra Kalantri. All of Inderjeet’s art exhibitions have always been titled around the theme of journey, as he believes that art as well as life is a continuous journey, nothing is permanent, life is in a flux. Creativity demands ongoing highly conscious self-knowledge, a journey within. His paintings, rendered in impressionist style, employ thick pigmented strokes applied with great virtuosity, revealing a style that is at once free and highly constructed. These works showcase the countryside, its landscapes, the people, their daily lives, their emotions, joys and worries engaged in daily activities, such as an old man waiting near his door, an old lady engaged in cooking food, the cycle rickshaws outside the house, facial emotions of dancers during their dance, various musical instruments.
