Jitendra Thorat is a painter, sculptor, and his work is centred on distinct ideas. In his childhood, symbols of animals that found their way into his drawings would often inspire him. It was early in his life that he understood his passion and proclivity toward 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. Although he was nurtured in a traditional Indian household and is constantly surrounded by the colours of his nation, his painting portrays modernism and a variety of viewpoints. He is a talented artist whose works revolve around the innocence of women and express the notion that a person holds their life in 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.
