Ajay Gulati is a contemporary artist and sculptor. Over thirty years, he has produced more than 1,500 works of art. He works with various media including wood, fiberglass, metal, clay, oils, interference gels and acrylic polymers. His studies in isometric and perspective drawings emerge in his work as a three-dimensional experience on a 2-D surface. The transition from coarse sculpted textures and colours to finer layers, dissolving towards a depiction of Light, is the signature technique that breathes life into his art.
The versatility in his style is expressed in a range of genres – from impressionism, abstract expressionism, surrealism and magic realism. Applying the principles of Sacred Geometry through his self-developed Compressed Sculpture technique, he brings forth intricate harmony as he combines matter and spirit. His creations are a contemplation on Light, and serve as portals for awakening and elevation of consciousness.
Ajay Gulati has exhibited in India and internationally, including Denmark, Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Mumbai and Bangalore. He holds the record for the maximum number of international solo exhibitions by any resident Indian artist below the age of fifty. His unique style and extensive media coverage have made Ajay Gulati a prominent Contemporary Artist and he has gained the support of patrons worldwide.
Travels and Inspirations
Since the last twenty five years, the artist spends half the year living and working in forests, beaches and expanses, far from the noise of urban life. He also spends at least a month trekking in the Himalayas. Uninterruptedly observing the play of light within and without manifests in the natural creation of his art.
