Yashwant Shirwadkar #Biography
Yashwant Shirwadkar was born in 1951 in Mumbai and completed his art studies in 1977. He painted his first watercolor at the age of 18 and there afterwards had no looking back. He is one of the most prolific landscape painters in India. He has exhibited 80 solo shows in diverse cities of India and abroad, over 20 two men shows and 200 group shows in Asia, Europe and America. He attempts to re-create the impression in the eye that views the subject, rather than recreating the subject. As a result his works have become a rage with the art lovers globally and are not limited to the impressionist art lovers club only. Shirwadkar paintings have been auctioned at Sothebys and Christies and many of his works have been cataloged in the prestigious public institutions and private collectors in India and abroad.
