Being originally trained in Graphics, my paintings confine to linear beauty, power of line and texture. Mostly I work with pen & ink and charcoal or otherwise use the acrylic colour for my canvases. I am very much inspired by the traditional Indian mural paintings of Ajanta. My other inspirations are- Amrita Shergil the great women painter of India and the well-known modern Indian painter Jagdish Dey. I mostly work on the theme of life and feminine power and induce them using colour and texture.
The artworks of N.P Pandey speak boldly of the artist’s close interpretation of human form and life and a clear study of the same. He basically plays with the human figure with its possible postures and emotions, to which he sculpts or chisels later using bold strokes and dark colours. Mostly capturing the female form his figures are ambiguous, powerful and formidable. In fact his works are vibrant blend of human thoughts, dreams and desires.
