Devidas Agase

Devidas Agase is a young conceptual artist who comes from a village Kuntephal, Beed, District, Marathwada region of Maharashtra State, India. Beed is a historical place of possibly medieval origin. The city has it's architectural remains an artist grown up with these artistic surroundings.

Devidas born in 1986, he has done his BFA in 2011 and MFA in 2013 from Sir J.J.School of art, Mumbai.

In his recent works, he deals with the struggle between the speculative and the moral complexities of his own life. The title of his show helps us to connect to the visuals of his paintings. The human head comes frequently but it has no particular identity, visualized as in search of identity. Non-representative, distorted forms, colorful flowers, the depiction of the brain, thick lines, and checks treated with hinges, a noble and limited pallet of colors, these are the major salient feature of his painting. Basically he plays with a very limited magnitude of colors and forms; still, it makes successive dialogue within it.

His paintings are the testimony of the acrobatics of his life. One of his painting titled ‘’Need says to dance with me”, or series of “Stage”, he draws the human figure as like the puppet and it controlled by unknown or to elaborate this, we can say it controlled by the circumstances. Eyes of his painting peek him from outside to help surmount the maze.

Devidas believes in the process of expression. In fact, the shades of experiences are the only backbone of every expression. To live, it requires playing varied roles at the same time. Consequently, the strain or the relation of society and struggle to obtain even basic fundamentals; to respond to this all polymorphism, he speaks out through his own visualities.

The treatment of colors and forms are very simple but straight and up to the concept. Devidas, in his visuals emotional, engaged but intellectually channelizing this knot. I wish him a bright future for his personal and professional life.
