The genius of Gaitonde

Gallery G, in Bengaluru, is showcasing a different facet of Vasudeo S. Gaitonde through his works on paper in the show, titled ‘Mystical Strokes’. One can see his poetic abstraction shine through in these smaller works as well. Gaitonde has used ink wash and watercolour to layer pigments in order to create depth and movement. “Each artwork encapsulates a unique moment of artistic expression, reflecting Gaitonde's ability to evoke emotions, provoke thoughts, and establish profound connections with viewers on a more intimate level,” states the curatorial note. ‘Mystical Strokes’ can be viewed at Gallery G, in the atrium, Ashok Nagar, Bengaluru, till 28 July, 10 am to 6.30 pm (Monday to Saturday)
