Aakash Anand makes drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations.

A computer engineer by training, along with vast experience in design and multimedia, his true focus is art . He draws the viewer into a world of unknowns in search of a disconcerting beauty, the inherent visual seductiveness that follows this quest is a labor - intensive process which he confesses to explicitly as a personal exorcism ritual.

Aakash uses ink to create highly detailed visual vocabulary with manifold layers of meaning, often applying abstraction to construct a fictional and experimental universe that emerges bit by bit. The path the pen takes is a narrative thread, constantly evolving, a rhythmic enigma of lines, dots and sacred geometry open to different interpretations.

The black and white imagery besides being followed by a spectacle of questions on what it means to us is notable for its perfect finish and intricate nature, it bears witness to great craftsmanship that is mysteriously beautiful, on the other hand painfully patient.

Highly experimental and always looking to push the boundaries of what is possible in a particular scene,  Aakash Anand is also the creator of “Untitled”, India’s first abstract comic book. He has participated in several group shows & LIVE art events in various cities and his works are in collections both in Asia and Africa. The artist lives and works in Bangalore.

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser Drawing must seek interest, not admiration. Because admiration wears quickly. I think when I'm drawing, I'm seeing what's happening on the page almost as if it were unfolding like a movie in my head. The first writing of the human being was drawing. I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies. Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad. Drawing is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence. Drawing makes you see things clearer, and clearer and clearer still, until your eyes ache. Art is entertainment. I still do a lot of drawing on a daily basis. Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic. Usually I commit to something in my head and then I start drawing. A drawing is simply a line going for a walk. I have been drawing all my life. For me, drawing generates thinking and vice versa. It's as if I were collaborating with myself, revealing my relationship to the material. My hand would make the drawing. Then my mouth would transmit it. I'm a believer that you shouldn't really talk about the drawing until you're done with the drawing.
