"My father is an Artist, so I started painting from a very young age. I'm painting since 20 years and I'm currently teaching in a school and rest of the time I work in my studio for upcoming projects. Me and my brother Praful Sawant, both are full time Artist. We both work in watercolors, Acrylic and oil. We are working together and take workshops internationally and are invited from different countries for demos. It feels great to represent India and take Art forward internationally.
Now a days, I'm working more on acrylics and I realised it's so beautiful and amazing to work on Acrylics. I believe Acrylic has it's own magic which cannot be achieved by oils and watercolors. I feel watercolors and oil is more focused nowadays so I'm trying to take Acrylic medium forward just like both of them. I take workshops all over India.
My process of teaching is to first share about acrylic history, theoretical knowledge and then step by step demo with layers. How exactly the layers are achieved with transparent and opaque colours.
One thing I would like to share with everyone is that we have so much access to everything nowadays because of technology and social media also we have so many international brands available now in India which was very difficult when I was learning, take full benefit from this and learn new things, explore your creativity. Practice will take you long way and never stop exploring new things/mediums." (Translated from Marathi) - Rajesh Sawant
