Provenance : Private collection of a Delhi based collector, Acquired directly from the artist
Pande was born in Lucknow in 1976. He trained in graphic design at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, from where he graduated in 2001. He held his first solo show, ‘A to Zoo’, at Chatterjee and Lal, Mumbai, in 2008, and his work has been featured in several group exhibitions. His works are made up of masses of undulating lines and frantic concentric circles, making each piece appear as if it is made up of several whirlpools of energy. The viewer’s focus constantly shifts from one density to another, some with movements that draw the eye inwards while others seem to spring out of the surface with wild abandon. The artist uses computer aided graphic design to create these hyperactive works of art. He further enhances these equation and vector-based works by overlaying the prints with materials such as ink, tinsel and acrylic paint along with beady, pop-artish eyes. Aditya Pande lives and works in New Delhi.
