“The ways and subways of life,” says Mahesh Karambele have not only led him to be a passionate artist but have literally constituted the ethos of his musings on canvas. The strength of his brush dipped in oil paint confidently etches out silhouettes of vehicular traffic, bridges, carts, flower sellers, the iconic dabbawalas of Mumbai, capturing the ethos of the buzzing metropolis. With buildings flirting with bylanes and pedestrian traffic, painting vivid scenes of ordinary folk and everyday humdrum of city living, the artist unveils his collection aptly and simply christened ‘Pratbimbh’. The Mumbai monsoon holds a special place as the artist creates washes and adeptly applies the oil medium with the expertise of watercolour techniques. The romanticism and inspiration that accompanies the rains is well depicted. The rush that characterises Mahesh’s canvases can be alluded to the adrenaline rush that the artist tends to work with, driven by the hidden joys in everyday chaos, crammed bylanes with Mumbai’s crowds and the perennial metropolitan pace of living. His paintings draw out the best of the perspectives as the colours shine bright against the evening light – the luminosity combined with the transparency of the weather – culls a beautiful cityscape that one can lose oneself into... indefinitely! Mahesh Karambele studied the technicalities of fine art as a sheer passion to fuel his natural bent for capturing his imagery on canvas. Adept at all mediums, he enjoys playing with chiaroscuro as much as he dabbles with everyday subjects, symbolically trying to portray a simple truth – there is joy in every little thing!
