Siddhartha Dhamankar. Life and Landscape

A majestic opulence characterizes the work of Indian artist Siddhartha Dhamankar. Looking to the innate elegance of the natural world for his subject, Dhamankar paints landscapes and architecture with a soulful veracity of theme.

Studying his native India with an astute eye for nuance, the artist portrays grand vistas with a remarkable resplendence and grace. He incorporates vestiges of aged manmade structures into his paintings, suggesting the magic of the past is alive today. With careful brushwork, Dhamankar paints with a poetic lyricism that imbues his realistic compositions with an expressive sense of wonder. A palette of rich earth tones distinguishes these paintings, which are animated by a sure understanding of color and hue. “My landscapes strive to capture the sites that have evoked emotions in me that cannot be expressed in any other manner than a painting,” says Dhamankar. “If a finished painting brings back memories of the sounds and feelings experienced while on location, I consider it a good validation for my artwork.”

Siddhartha Dhamankar lives and works in Chicago and Mumbai.
