Nachiket Shah, based in Solapur, Maharashtra, is an artist in pursuit of perfection, holding a mirror to nature. He tried to go beyond the obvious and unravel the natural beauty, strength and poise inherent in nature. Being a civil engineer by education he brings to his palette a clear understanding of the dynamics of nature, whether it is the tautness of the muscles in his animal studies or the grace of the wild creatures in his paintings. He has a clear understanding of the various hues of colors perfected by nature through eons and tries to capture the hues and bring them to the fore. No canvas is big for Nachiket as he enjoys taming the huge canvases to accommodate his passion for super realistic work. The viewer is held in awe; struck by the scale and detail that goes into his works in many exhibitions like at Mumbai, Dubai, Delhi, and Kolkata.
