Prafull Sawant Paints in Watercolor and Oils. He is from Nasik, a pilgrimage city in Maharashtra India with beautiful river Ghats and temples. He was born in a family of artists. His father and brother are also well Known artists..
He looks for a scene that intrigues him- usually an ancient temple, a traditional Indian house called wada or an old lane, then edits the scene in his painting often assertively. He picks and chooses what to leave in, what to leave out and what to add. “I look for the soul of a scene,” Sawant says. “And that comes from the atmosphere. The actual site
itself isn’t important to me. Instead, it’s a medium, just like the paint or the paper.”
