IPad Art by Space Designer Jatin Bhatt

I Chitra, ipad Art, Jatin Bhatt

Inspired by the dexterous cartoonist Mario Miranda, the friendly vibes of Jatin Bhatt’s digital art broke all the traditionalist myth of not inculcating digital techniques in design thinking methods. His exhibition ‘I Chitra‘ displays 36 artworks all made with an apple pen on an iPad ! No usage of paint, paper or brush in the entire exhibit, gives the display a novel perspective. The artworks are non-thematic, yet each one is captivating and enchanting. Inaugurated on December 28, 2017, at Ravishankar Raval Kala Bhavan in the presence of dynamic architect Hiren Patel, space designer Bhatt’s art depicted aesthetics through vector and it shows his continually amplifying journey – from an architect to an artist.

His vocabulary in animal-figures narrates innocence in frames. The Ostrich’s bewildering look or the cow’s about to moo face hides story within strokes. To an untrained eye his figuration of people may come across as an image using filters from the popular Prisma App, but a deeper glance, and one would discover Bhatt’s artistic flair. The Nightscapes were like flashes from a memory, where he might have forgotten the real-time person or situation but can’t let go off the feeling of being there. ‘I Chitra’ is Bhatt’s first solo exhibition, his previous experience being a group photography exhibition of images from Turkey, that he clicked along with his other architect and interior designer friends.

Bhatt’s response to “why IPad”, is utilitarian, he says “It’s feasible for me to carry a tabloid, with me rather than paint and canvas. I didn’t want my artistic urge to deplete in the days when I was travelling for work. Thus the stylus became a tool to express instead of the brush.” It is yet another case of artistic urge leading the means and the medium of art.

The exhibition is open for all until December 31, 2017.

We request our readers who, if visit the show, give feedback to authorities at the Ravishankar Raval Kala Bhavan to repair the seepage tinted walls and clean the surfaces of used tapes. These anomalies devours the viewers’ attention and dents the experience of appreciating art in a gallery.
