53.Fremdeblicke - Artist Showcase - Gaurang Makhwana

A young budding artist from Ahmedabad, India, has developed his own new genre of paintings, mostly using acrylic and water colors to create the charismatic bright and dull textures in them, which largely orbit around the central idea of the contrast of rural versus urban ethos and their variances...the progress of technology and deterioration of values…growing material comfort and lessening mental peace…. ‘Development at the cost of Destruction’!!!

Most of his creations are intensely thought-provoking and take us to the world of ceaseless debating thoughts of coalescence of rural lifestyles with modernity….the simplicity & serenity of the countryside, its vivacious and joyous festivals, the small but cohesive social groups, their traditions, customs and rituals……to the stifling, nerve-wracking and fast paced urban life. His paintings convey the message - “Back to Nature”.

One of the participating artists of the 53rd Fremdeblicke exhibition, titled 'Does it make Sense? ', he was a significant participant in the making of  “The Longest Painting of the world : The Kankaria lake, Ahmedabad” in 1999 which was painted by  2200 artists together for three days and nights continuously and  has found a place in ‘The Guinness Book of world Records’. The “86 Feet longest mural work in Gandhi Nagar, Sachivalaya” stands as yet another example of his artistic endowment.
