Vrindavan Solanki the art veteran who has been featured in numerous group and solo art exhibition across the globe is back in the city of Ahmedabad, with his latest solo show, Captivating Contours. The exhibition is open to all art enthusiasts from December 20, 2016, to December 25, 2016, at the renowned art space of the city, Amdavad Ni Gufa.

Solanki as always, has been successful in expressing the real cultural fabric of India through this exhibition. Hailing from the contours of Junagadh, and trained at the artistic environs of MS University, Baroda, Solanki’s aesthetics have been transmogrifying oil and acrylic colors into beautiful Rabari community portrayals since decades. His subjects that are usually depicted showing their back within the canvas becomes more mystical when they are drawn completely faceless. His huge life-sized paintings and even the smaller ones have been imitating the timeline of traditions since a long time now. The exhibition marks the launch of serigraphs of his collection, which has been curated and presented by Archer Art Gallery, Ahmedabad. Many who have been appreciators of Solanki’s work now have a wider access to own his works.
