Dnyati Wagh,a Bangalore-based artist
will be showcasing her exhibition ‘Mayur’ from 29 January to 3 February 2011 at Right Lines Art Gallery.  Born in 1981 in Pune, Dnyati has a Diploma in Applied Arts from Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya, Pune and a Diploma in advanced Computer Arts from CDAC, Mumbai. She also studied photography. She spent many years working with some of the leading advertising agencies in India, but gave it up to focus on painting since 2006.

Dnyati studied Kathak under Smt Pritam Shikhare, student of Pandita Rohini Bhate. The deep influence of both art forms is very apparent in her paintings.Dnyati says, “I think rhythm, balance, variety and harmony are the common natural concepts in both painting and dance. Based on these concepts, an artist creates a composition using the tools available in that particular art form. While painting with the brush, one can create 3D illusion on the 2D space. In dance, you yourself as a brush can create a 3D picture on the canvas which is the stage. As an artist, I have always experienced a similar level of creative satisfaction in both dance as well as painting.”

Concepts from Kathak, like the Peacock in Gat, Radha and Krishna have had a deep impact on the artist and have thus found a way into her paintings. The theme of this series is the peacock (mayur). It has a special place in Indian culture and in Dnyati’s heart because, as she says, “It is a very good dancer. It decorates Lord Krishna’s crown. It is associated with Goddess Saraswati. It’s our national bird.”

Dnyati is particularly fascinated by the beautiful forms of the peacock feather. The divisions created by the intersection of the lines of feathers always evolve into different forms and compositions each time. So it’s an endless journey…The majority of the paintings are done with transparent photo colours on paper. “This medium is fresh and bright. It’s also a challenging medium. Once I apply this colour, using my technique, there is no chance to change it!” she says.
