rameshwarbroota-2Rameshwar Broota, born in 1941 is one of the talented painters of modern India. Broota mostly paints in the monochrome technique. His canvas foundation is usually painted in matte black. He works with a sharp and thin blade so as to bring in light and forms. This exposes the white surface below giving it a magnificent effect and creating deep space dimensions. His paintings look like a print.


His work of art has earned him three prestigious Lalit Kala Academy awards in 1980, 1981 and 1984. He was awarded the ‘Kala Vibhushan’ award by the AIFACS in 1987. From the very beginning of Broota’s career, he has been passionately involved in the human situation that degrades individuals. As a young painter Broota’s anger at the sufferings of the poor and the anguish at the voracity and corruption that he saw in society was eminently expressed in his early works which are a sardonic and bitter comment on the social society.


While admiring Broota’s Painting, imagination takes over the real form inspite of looking at a real form. There are innumerable interpretations that the spectator may have about his paintings but the importance and the joy is when Broota allows you to weave your own story through the painting.


His canvasses are large and are enormously obscure monumental drawings. Broota’s present works have an abstract bent with symbols communicating the cadence of time, of man, and of existence. His works can be seen at www.broota.com.


Broota has also made some experimental video art films which were shown at Shridharani Gallery in 1987. Broota’s works are housed in the leading collections in the National Gallery of Modern Art, Lalit Kala Academy, and other international art museums.
