Chandrakant produces beautiful paintings and drawings that mimic the colours of his Indian heritage and re-interpret the repetitive patterns of traditional Hindu mandalas.
He frequently works on several pieces at one time, layering inks, acrylics and pen in his own unique style. Working intuitively his drawing technique combines crisp free flowing lines and delicate short marks, using marker pens and fine liners to create brightly coloured contours and organic shapes, building wispy lines into solid forms. The drawings often shift in approach some are complete with a sparse composition others are packed with tight dense lines.
Chandrakant’s painting is often large scale, full of movement with flowing brush marks combined with loose layers of rich, immersive colour. His work encompasses both grand-scale and fine detail highlighting the dexterity of this distinctive artist.
