About Nitin Utge

Nitin Utge creates a world that focuses on children from all strata of society, who appear carefree and cheerful but a closer look reveals the cheerfulness as a mask. He likes to use high contrast in his paintings; these not only create a sense of drama but also heighten the excitement in his paintings. A contrast is created by using the brighter colours in an opaque application and the earthy tones in a translucent manner. This also creates an interesting textural quality in his works, which allows him to express his vision most vividly.
