Both alumni of the College of Art, New Delhi, the artist’s duo are painting one theme, that is nature but have a different language and technique of their own to depict the feeling, passion and love for nature through their different subtle colours palette, forms and textures.
Kirti has a bright vibrant palette with colours like neons and direct colours and also minute detailing derived from folk art, Prashant has dreamy pastels as his favourite colours in his palette and a typical style of creating textures. Nature plays as “The Muse” for both of them. Besides being a painter, Prashant K. Sarkar is a sculptor, designer and plays the tabla and various other rhythmic instruments.
Through this extraordinary collaborative art platform with Kalakriti Foundation, Delhi, Pracheen Kala Kendra, has endeavoured to support these artists by creating opportunities for them to showcase their artworks and various creations in both fields of Visual and Performing Arts.
