Law of art on the canvas, New lawyer-turned-artist stuns with ethereal artwork at “Odyssey” at Jehangir Art Gallery
MUMBAI, (GNI): In the hustle and bustle of life, we often tend to neglect our passion. Very few in this rat race, make an effort to pursue their childhood dreams. A true ‘advocate’ of art, Nitin Potdar has proved that it’s never too late to start a new journey. Noteworthy and immeasurably talented Nitin Potdar left spectators scratching their heads with his artwork. Nitin, who is a lawyer, took to the easel five years ago to produce serene paintings. His existential creations charm audiences via sensitive strokes and deft use of colour.
“We develop a unique talent and enjoy that through our childhood. But in the race to climb the corporate ladder, it’s hard to continue with it. I believe that every person should revisit his or her childhood dreams at some point in their lives,” said Nitin Potdar.
Nitin devoted 30 years of his career interpreting people around him and the situations they’re in. This always captivated him, which led to his series of breathtaking abstracts called “Impressions”. Nitin’s work captured the life of a lawyer just by the effortless wielding of his brush. “Conceptually this journey is no different from what I have been doing all these years as a lawyer. Making a portrait requires the equal amount of effort, patience and attention,” added Potdar.
While Odyssey will be inaugurated by eminent artist and JJ School of Arts professor Prabhakar Kolte, the event will also host some very special guests, including senior journalist Kumar Ketkar, singer-composer Kaushal Inamdar, and noted screenwriter-actor-director Amole Gupte. The exhibition was held to reminisce the insanely popular Greek epic, “Odyssey” in a way in which the spirit of a multi-faceted journey was recreated.
