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.
