Amaresh Bijjal’s art is kinaesthetic, stylized, modern, and firmly rooted in an Indian ethos. Fluid, flowing lines and powerful, sinewy figures come together in his bold, stark black-and-white paintings and drawings. The action-packed art features graceful, masculine figures like bulls, horses, rams and abstract human nudes. Nature, local ecosystems, childhood memories, movement and dance are starting points for Bijjal’s art, which he believes is a direct response to his time and society.
