Anil Kumar

Anil Kumar’s work starts from his autobiography along this talk about the economic condition in the family, which connect with the place, based on the human tendencies and the curiosity within the urban lifestyle and playing with dialogues and the images. He is very much fascinated towards drawings; he paints the celebration of hopeful and cheerful aspects of life. The materials and medium of work change according to the context and space.

“Everything is exchangeable, because, everything becomes a commodity; all reality is mechanically measured by its materiality.

The curiosity to explore and know is the very key to execute an artwork. So, his perspectives and perceptions towards the objects and subjects, occupied him, are overlapped. The artist looks at an object and its aestheticism, and sometimes objects itself shows off its beauty. His ideas of an artwork go deeper conceptually and sensibly.
