‘It is amazing that Tanuj is able to tap into the mystical and the supernatural to create images that are so deeply embedded into the unconscious mind with such graceful ease to paint images that are forthright and definitive,’ says Alka Raghuvanshi. It is an old adage that simplicity is the most complicated to achieve. It could seem like a contradiction in terms, but there is no better description of Tanuj Bhramar’s paintings. His reds, blues, yellows and greens rub shoulders with stark blacks and shiny greens but instead of grating, have the ability to soothe with their apparent minimalism. Look a little closer and there is great complexity of thought and grace of form in the works.

The woman protagonist is recurring icon in his paintings as she appears, almost unbidden to inhabit his paintings complete with amazing strength of character in her face to add an aura of mystery to his paintings.

Right now, there is a small art school on the NGO’s premises, and Tanuj hopes that the proceeds from his exhibition will help them build a bigger school.
