Aditya Pande’s large-format works are made up of masses of undulating lines and frantic concentric circles, making each piece appear as if it is made up of several whirlpools of energy. The viewer’s focus constantly shifts from one density to another, some with movements that draw the eye inwards while others seem to spring out of the surface with wild abandon.
The artist uses computer-aided graphic design to create these hyperactive works of art. He further enhances these equations and vector-based works by overlaying the prints with materials such as ink, tinsel, and acrylic paint along with beady, pop-artist eyes.
Pande was born in Lucknow in 1976 and raised in Chandigarh. He trained in graphic design at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, from where he graduated in 2001. He held his first solo show, ‘A to Zoo’, at Chatterjee and Lal, Mumbai, in 2008, and his work has been featured in several group exhibitions. The most recent include those held at Alexia Goethe Gallery, London, in collaboration with Gallery Nature Morte, New Delhi; ‘Neti-Neti (Not This, Not This)’ at Bose Pacia, New York; and ‘New Paintings’ at Gallery Nature Morte, New Delhi, all in 2008.
Aditya Pande lives and works in New Delhi.
