He walks on the edge, dabbling with colors and life. For him, life is an experiment, and he's here to investigate it to the hilt. Taking his inspiration from Laxma Goud and Ghulam Sheikh, Fawad Tamkanat is no everyday artist. With his Master's Degree from the Hyderabad Central University
, and 5 years of teaching experience at Princess Esin Women's Educational Center in design and photography, he clasps his talent with his two hands and meanders through the walk of life, looking for meaning and for growth.
His specialty in the field is Dry Point, a kind of sketching. It is done on zinc plates, which Tamkanat has substituted with acrylic plates. He has also used Rice Paper to increase the life of his artwork.
The most astonishing part about this artist is that his style keeps changing every 3-4 years. Tamkanat does not believe in stagnating just to feel secure about the money coming in. For him, painting is the road to reason and a full stomach at the end of the day. And the former cause is, any day, the more worthy one. And yet he is convinced that people will pay for his work, no matter what style he makes use of.
And his life has proved him right. He has more than 35 shows to his credit all over the globe. His contribution in this exhibition is a series of about 200 portraits of women on blocks of wood the same size, done in acrylic. Some of his previous accomplishments are:
? Solo show at Hype Gallery, France (2005)
? Solo show at Gallery Dengule Guard, Denmark (2003)
? Solo show at Kristin Kjaer Museum, Denmark (2001)
? Solo show at Vingsted Center Gallery, Denmark (1999)
? Solo show Cobra Gallery Copenhagen, Denmark (1999)
? Group shows - Moods (Indian Danish Painters), Denmark (2003)
Another exclusive thing about Tamkanat is that he uses his studio as his gallery too. So you are more than welcome to step in and be part of his life's experiences. And make his recklessness part of yours.
