About artist Vasudeo Kamath
Ever since he was a child, his attraction for drawing was recognised by people around him. Scribbling started even before he could write. These were the first expressions of the latent artist within him.
His parents and school teachers recognised his talent and encouraged him to pursue art as his career. When he finished schooling, he enrolled at Sir J. J. School of Art, in Mumbai. This art school provided him with the platform to prove his talents. Awards and rewards followed. Since then, he has been relentlessly sketching, painting with all devotion and dedication. This has built up his creativity on a solid foundation rooted in perfection of drawing.
He prefers painting in oils on canvas and watercolor on handmade papers, but he also enjoys painting with acrylics and oil and soft pastels. Ever since his academic days, he loves painting landscapes on location and portraits from life. He also creates conceptual paintings based on his ideas of what he firmly believes in and what he always stands by. In addition, in the subjective paintings, he tries to bring out the mythological and historical subjects with detailed study and realistic depiction of that era.
He paints commissioned portraits as also portraits of the people around. He also invites dignitaries for a sitting as also he is invited by the diplomats and eminent personalities for painting from life. His mastery in portraits has won many awards, the most acclaimed one is the Draper Grand Award bestowed upon by The Portrait Society of America for his portrait, and 'My Wife' in 2006.
