Art always leads an individual to ponder deeply about a particular subject. It merges completely with one’s thoughts and stimulates the very process of thinking. Thoughts vary with situations. An individual is never fully satisfied with his life, and hence thoughts change frequently with emotions and expectations. Art stimulates thought, thoughts lead to imagination, and imagination creates art that can be a masterpiece.
But thoughts can manipulate and influence an individual both positively and negatively. A glass of water, for example, may be considered as half full, or half empty. Yogesh’s printmaking and paintings deal with the play between such positive and negative thoughts. His compositions are pure portrayals of his first, spontaneous thoughts as they occur – without allowing a second thought to intrude, thus producing expressions in their purest form.
Yogesh has a Masters in Fine Art, and is the recipient of several National and International awards over the years. Some of his notable achievements are –2015 - 74thAll India Art Exhibition, Hyderabad Art Society, Hyderabad
