Utkarsh Makwana holds a Masters’ degree in Visual Arts in Painting from Maharaja Sayajirao University, Vadodara. Utkarsh’s practice deals mainly with drawing and painting taking reference from miniature traditions and everyday life. He creates multifaceted layered narratives through his paintings and drawings. His prime concern is the depiction of a story in each work, which gradually reveals itself as the eye moves through the whole work. Through his work he tries to create an imaginary world, consisting of humans, animals, birds, aliens and several other imaginary creatures and objects. His drawings become a tool to invoke these fictitious elements, like a traveller documenting his travels in an imaginary world. His work becomes the point of interaction between the mundane and the imagined worlds for the viewers. The artist lives and works in Vadodara.
