Arvind Kolapkar is an artist from Pune, the cultural capital of Maharashtra where music is one of the most important pastimes. He is one who is greatly inspired by music, particularly classical and folk music which has played a predominant role in the works he is exhibiting at the Alankritha Art Gallery. Colours and melody are seamlessly fused in his paintings which convey a kaleidoscope of emotions too. The female form, the central element of his art, is enchanting and even evoking a mysterious enigma. For Kolapkar, painting is an ongoing process of creative activity where emotion and music plays a greater role in the end product.
