“Art is the response of man’s creative soul to the call of the real.” – Rabindranath Tagore
Art is as old as civilization. But it is this century which ends in a day which has given a distinct character to the Indian brush. It is the modern artist who comes center stage with a vision born of the encounter of the world of constant awareness and one such artist who made a remarkable impact on divine dimensions of modern art is Divyam Kaushik.
Painter-poet Divyam arrived on the Indian art scene in the early 2014 with a unique vision which marks for the painter-poet a special place in art. Born of Brahman parentage, Noida based Divyam has indeed, effected a fusion of east and west to evolve a new style of painting.
In a one year creative span, he painted the visions and ideas that come to his mind and ensured for himself a place for all times with one room at his Residence in Noida specially reserved for his paintings, music and lights. There is an aura of calmness in his pieces that he feels there where he lives. What makes Divyam’s artwork more interactive is his therapeutic approach, a number of his works in painting, sketch, mural etc. explores the contributions of self-psychology to the conceptualization of art and healing on an individual and cultural level. According to Divyam, art helps him deal with matters that have affected him directly or indirectly and this helps him to move on.
On a larger scale, Divyam’s typical day would be an eight hours of full-time (manic) work and four hours of painting every night. He has been moving to different places all his life. For some time he has been trying to strengthen the feeling of immersion- what he has felt and learnt from staying in one place or moving to another and his past relationships. He has implemented it by creating large pieces and making the picture from first person point of view. This helps the audience to think of themselves in the action of the painting.
His flamboyance, individuality and freedom went into making Divyam a genius in his way and that is what makes him an artist to watch out for in the upcoming years.
“Don’t be so hard on yourself. Be free, make mistakes, live without boundaries; get hurt because in the end life is nothing but a collection of coincidences’’ –Divyam
