Amit Lodh, was born in Jamshedpur, state Jharkhand. He has completed BFA in Painting specialization from Indira Kala Sangit Vishvvidhyalaya Chhattisgarh in 2008 and joined M.S. University of Baroda for Masters degree in printmaking and completed in 2012.
Recently got married and moved to Mumbai where he lives and works in his personal studio. He spoke about Bombay Boys, a collective of artists from Mumbai whom work in a community art work which got promoted worldwide due their contemporary view of art.
Amit Lodh, titles his work as A conceptual family, which, on a very interesting way to expose his expression, he represents his cat, his wife and himself in a body of a clown and a face of the Rajastani Chef with his recognized rajastani moustache, who is actually cooking for the artists of this Art Camp. This way of getting influenced in what is surrounding him at the moment of creation, has absolutely an enjoyment brought to his canvas conveyed by his vivid and vibrant colors upon the composition of the painting.
He is influenced by Mumbai life style, the movement, crowd, the figurants of the city transported in tones of colors to absorb the pollution and traffic of the busy metro city. He says “No negativity on my art” and this sentence explains the choice of colors and the representations of his figures resulting in a fantasy picture. His cat, he said, is very much afraid of water (as all cats in this world) so he is positioned in the yellow circle on the ground.
His techniques covers pre maid sketches worked in Photoshop for color treatment and composition.
