About Krishnaprakash Vasant Martand
Krishnaprakash Vasant Martand, (born on 11/05/1979), hails from Gulbarga, Karnataka.
He specializes in ink and paper ‘line art’ that features for the large part abstract, heavily ornamented Gods and Goddesses inspired primarily by Indian mythology.
Unlike the famed Surpur miniature paintings which his work has a passing resemblance to, and which he claims as a big influence, he uses clean lines in the service of a revisionist, contemporary, whimsical re-imagining of the characters that dot the ancient Indian epics. His larger works, usually monochromatic, are dense and intricate and calligraphic in their treatment.
