Gopi Gajwani View Artworks of Gopi Gajwani Back to Artist

Gopi Gajwani was born in Sind before the partition in1938. He graduated in Art from Delhi School of Art in 1959. Taking Delhi as his base, he established himself as a versatile and multidimensional artist, winning accolades for his paintings, designs, cartoons and caricatures. 

 

He has exhibited at Delhi Silpi Chakra, New Delhi 1967, National Exhibition of Art, New Delhi 1967, “A Tribute”, New Delhi- 1972, Graphics and Drawings, Black Partridge Gallery, 1975, Artist’s forum, New Delhi 1976, 53 artists of Delhi, New Delhi 1979, Contemporary Paintings in miniature format, New Delhi-1980, 6th Triennale – India , New Delhi 1986, Festival International De LA Bande Dessinee, Sierre, Switzerland, Art for Cry, New Delhi 1988, etc.

 

Gopi Gajwani has kept the abstract scene alive. His landing of space and colours is superb and very modern as well. The structure of his scapes proceeds on point-counterpoint basis. Large or small areas of colour are balanced in the most astute manner through their counterpoints (or touches in the counter-space).

 

The artist’s favourite medium is oil on canvas although he has done work in other media like watercolour, Chinese ink and acrylic. He has this rare ability to intuitively grasp the behaviour of colours, develop an intimate equation with them and understand even their minutest of nuances. His work has often been categorised as abstract expressionism, but Gajwani himself describes his works as a sort of melody in abstraction where each colour and the way it is used is a key to decoding the work.
