About Artist's Practice
Nikhil Purohit’s, B. 1985, series of drawings register idiosyncrasies observed of people. They are pictorial congregations of human general attitudes observed both actively and passively of individuals independently and as collectives The illustrations of undraped human bodies portray a plain representation avoiding any peculiar association to gender, region, caste, creed etc. The apparently random arrangement of figures presents the viewer with a variety of meaning making within the scope of their perception. The identity that make demographic distinctions are abstracted to an extent of letting them just look human.
He pursued his art at the Sir J.J. School of Art in Mumbai, and his Museuology at the CSMVS at Mumbai. He spends his time between Mumbai and Pune.
