Chandrashekar Waghmare

Artist Profile

Chandrashekar is a master printmaker, art professor and the founder of Orange Atelier (a printmaking studio) based in Nagpur.

Statement of Work

My work is the outcome of natural response to my immediate environment. The imagery I use reflects how I observe social issues and situations around me. I always have tried to show the actual picture of our society in my compositions. My works are familiar to everyone, since they are experienced by spectator. I have used animal form to represent the society as well as self situation. I gradually change my subject in work. In one sentence it can be said that I have used various metaphors to express the social issues and problems with a comprehensible message.
