Agacharya

Commission Request
Artist
Agacharya
Hyderabad, India

Coming from a rural background, Agacharya recalls memories of his village and elucidates the very essence of its culture through his colourful paintings. His paintings are predominantly figurative, showing women from the southern part of India engrossed in routine activities, as they proclaim their collective identity. He deliberately avoids any embellishment on his figures, and says his people are plain hence there is absence of embellishments. Agacharya’s colour palette has a wide range of warm yellows, bright reds and deep greens. However, what makes him distinctive is that his paintings show a sense of empathy, capturing the beautiful rural settings and the sensuality of elegant women. It appears that most of his figures are deliberately placed with profiles rather than frontal views in a reticent escape from the viewer’s gaze.

In-spired by the women of his native village, his depictions are a distinctive vision of the quintessential rural woman, vividly bringing out their honest raw beauty.
