Featured Artist For September 2017: Chandrakant Patel


September Featured Artist is Chandrakant Patel. Chandrakant Patel is a resident studio artist at our Voltaire Tuesday Studio project since 2004

Chandrakant produces beautiful paintings and drawings that mimic the colours of his Indian heritage and re-interpret the repetitive patterns of traditional Hindu mandalas. He frequently works on several pieces at one time, layering inks, acrylics and pen in his own unique style.

Chandrakants painting is often large scale, full of movement with flowing brush marks combined with loose layers of rich, immersive colour. His work encompasses both grand-scale and fine detail highlighting the dexterity of this distinctive artist.

He has exhibited widely through ActionSpace and thrives when presented with an ambitious project. Chandrakant has exhibited and created site specific art works all our exhibitions and events set in public spaces at Tooting Market and the Southside Shopping Centres for Part of It and Watch This Space. He can dip easily between large and smaller scale but always takes the opportunity when working beyond the studio to work big and bold.
