Artflute presents ‘The Essential Romantic’, an online showcase with a curated collection of works by widely recognised new media and digital artist Vijit Pillai. With this online exhibition, Vijit Pillai presents his choicest creations that are a visual ode to the work of legendary musicians, renowned poets and inspiring writers.
Over the last few years, Vijit Pillai has taken to experimenting and creating art that tells a story - personal and intimate; as his way to channel his idealistic romanticism. Greatly inspired by the lives and music of legendary artists such as Jimmy Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Allman Brothers, Vijit has memorialised his life altering experiences and relationships through his works of art. Some of his other playful pieces are drawn from the quirks of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and evocative poetry of Edgar Allan Poe.
Vijit uses his own photographs and other references which take new form through the use of textures, filters, patterns and sophisticated digital techniques. Through a contemporary touch of digital media, the artist explores the world of the past. His works reveal the visual articulation of the songs’ lyrics and poetry that have been an inspiration all his life and allows the viewer to take a transcendental dip into his visual storytelling.
Vijit Pillai adds, “In all my experiences, I've realized that we all tend to remember events that are most dramatic; whether the pleasant or the unpleasant. And I have always found refuge in music and poetry as a way to process my experiences and create art that celebrates life.”
Artflute invites collectors and art enthusiasts to celebrate this poignant romance of music and poetry through art.
Price Range: Rs. 93,500 onwards
