Solo exhibition of 10 paintings depicting ephemeral moments from his travels, immortalized as renditions in black and white acrylics by debutante artist Jojo.
The work on display emphasizes the intensity, beauty, joy and melancholy of fleeting interactions people have with nature and providence.
10 seemingly simple moments, whose beauty goes un-noticed and un-registered in the real world, are captured in this timeless Collection. This Collection is part of a continuing exploration of honesty to the subject, the medium and personal expression, panning myriads of un-staged circumstances.
The Artist takes inspiration from the vistas of different coastal paradises of India in this Collection. It was a self-imposed challenge by the Artist to achieve comprehensive expression, encompassing unity of gesture, depth and feeling through his own characteristic self taught style of painting. The Artist also imposed the restriction of an extremely limited palette to showcase the potential of black and white acrylics to go farther than just a sketching tool.
About the Artist
Jojo is the sensitive, reserved and turbulent artist alter ego of the much too sensible, calculating and empathetic ui/ux designer and engineer Manoj Mohan.
This is the first solo show by the Artist, after four years of self driven & stormy romance with the study of form, color, gesture, portraiture and unity of expression in the medium of acrylic paints and digital art.
Against convention, the Artist moved from digital art to the conventional medium of painting as his preferred tool of expression.
Manoj is a young practicing designer and artist based out of the beautiful city of Bengaluru, among the multitude of driven thinkers and doers that make the city tick.
"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
