Vikash Jha To Display Recent Works of Abstract Expressionism in Clio Art Fair 2019

Vikash Jha, a contemporary artist based in the Greater New York area, will show paintings from his most recent series of works, 'Introspection', at Clio Art Fair 2019, 550 West 29th Street, from March 7 to March 10. Clio Art Fair is a definitive art fair in the United States curated from an international selection of artists. The fair will feature several of Vikash's recent works from the series 'Introspection' focusing on the emotions evoked when the artist starts to look inward. These emotions range from joy, happiness, sadness, satisfaction, hopefulness, hopelessness, openness, shyness, and to all the different shades in-between.

Born and brought up in eastern India, Vikash's paintings are influenced by the vibrant colors and textures omnipresent in Indian cultural landscape, fabrics and daily-life. His paintings have a flamboyant, colorful yet pensive style. Having lived in the U.S. for over a decade, his paintings present the western influence of modernism juxtaposed with his inherent meditational and bucolic charm. Skillful usage of bold brush and palette-knife strokes, opportune use of mixed mediums to create textures and visuals, and imaginatively generous use of bright and shuttle colors transforms Vikash's abstract paintings into joyful, exuberant and purposeful experiences.

"This series (Introspection) is culmination of many such introspective imageries that I experience and visualize every time I close my eyes thinking about my life experiences in a deeply personal way. It brings out a plethora of emotions almost always manifested and expressed in a positive and colorful way" - Vikash Jha

Vikash was born in eastern India with extensive cultural influence. The attraction to the colors and love for painting came to him early-on in his life. The cultural influence eventually inspired him to graduate in Fine Arts through a prestigious non-profit university affiliated program. Vikash also holds an MBA degree from a top institution in India and works in Financial Services industry. He has been a student of fine arts all his life and has experimented in multiple mediums - from water colors, acrylics and oil paints to charcoals, pastels and mixed media throughout his student and professional life that has taken him to New Delhi and the western state of Gujarat in India, Dubai in UAE and New York.

In recent years his works have been focused mostly on abstract expressionism - with both modern and post-modern/contemporary influences.

Vikash has drawn inspiration from the greats such as Vincent Van Gogh, Henry Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Willem De Kooning, James Rosenquist, and Robert Rauschenberg and the likes and many Indian greats like S.H.Raza and V.S.Gaitonde as he is growing as an artist and developing unique style and sensitivity of his own.
