Information provided by the Artist: Suhas Bhujbal creates compositions of colorful, overlapping forms and marks to describe various architectural facades. Architecture provides him with a tangible scaffolding around which to construct a specific mood or narrative. Many of his paintings depict the effects of modernization and population growth in Indian cities. These congested horizons are much different from those of US cities, where urban planning codes have regulated construction and preserved open spaces. The juxtaposition of old buildings and flashy new architecture and the whirlwind of commercial signboards, banners, and colorful stalls where merchants sell saris and spices provide the inspirational springboard for his compositions, which create harmony out of chaos and conflict. Bhujbal captures the characters of people seen every day. Whether it is in San Francisco or where he is traveling, he finds people from various cultures, ethnicities, nationalities, and ages and creates expressive, rapid sketches of them.
