[Text Wrapping Break][Text Wrapping Break]The artist’s perception of city life, and his reaction to the situations come through his visuals, in his paintings. People, an integral part of the city, dominate the pictoral space. Each work is executed after much deliberation and thought towards subject matter as well as space definition.[Text Wrapping Break][Text Wrapping Break]Sharma uses solid forms and defined patterns to achieve a balance in his works. The sombre colours and visuals create an identity with which a city goer can easily apprehend. Each one being a comment on the society which we thrive on and on the life we choose to live.[Text Wrapping Break][Text Wrapping Break]Having also worked in graphics and clay, the artist prefers painting as his forte. Most of his works are done in acrylic colours. Sharma's passion for his art extends to another dimension: teaching children.
