    Jitendar Thorat

    The world of artist, painter and sculptor, Jitendra Thorat revolves around a set of ideas. In his childhood, symbols of animals that found their way in his drawings would often inspire him. It was early in his life that he understood his passion and proclivity towards art and sculpting. He works as a farmer in the fields of Girim, Pune. His status as an artist finds stimulation in the clean air, and his surroundings, nature. And although he is a traditionally brought up Indian who absorbs his country’s colours every day, his art reflects modernity and varying vision.

    He is a gifted artist whose work orbits around the purity of women as it thunders through his art, reflecting this idea of a person’s life in the palm of their own hands. He believes it is for them to acknowledge whether to let it fly, or lose it, then gain it once again. His motifs contain ideas of legends, divided bodies representing not just external form, but thought. He believes in an elated world where negativity based on genders, class, caste or creed are the evils that are within our reach, and yet, we struggle to catch them as though we are not part of this global dilemma.
