Prashanta Shrestha

Prashanta Shrestha's paintings do not capture the objects, events and people of the external world as we see them in the real world but express his own inner emotions and feelings through unusual images and altered colours. Distinct and bold contours and perceptible textures give the works gravity and strength. Spontaneous gestures of brush strokes make the compositions dynamic and musical. Out of seemingly abstract shapes and images, the human figures come forth in playful manner. There is the play of absence and presence of the figures. Despite the difficulty in distinguishing the gender of the human characters, the female figures are recurrent in their distinct mood.
