Lives and Works: Mumbai
Sumeet is a self-taught abstractionist, who aims to push the boundaries of understanding and imagination, by blurring the lines of ideation and abstraction, and thus opening the viewer to portals of thought-association.
He primarily works with acrylic colours, and tends to employ organic ways to paint: sometimes using only his hands and fingers, and at other times, using discarded credit cards, pieces of wood and plastic amongst other tools. In his own words, what he does is 'stream of consciousness painting' at its most organic, where he loses control after a point of time and rather lets the painting create itself. His process involves using layers of paint, in frenzied, almost violent movements and often balancing them with sedate, gentle spreads, thus creating a cohesive world of possibilities.
'Art Brut' is the school he identifies himself with the most. His sole aim is to reach out to more people and have lifelong conversations with his audience across the world through his artworks.
Apart from abstract expressionism, Sumeet works as a full-time writer, dabbling in various forms of writing and a photographer-for-hire, primarily focussing on street and documentary style photography. He also works to spread mental health awareness.
