The impressionist

Vijay Achrekar’s  artworks are conventional with a touch of modernisation, that  renders a very smooth and realistic depictions.

Artist Vijay Achrekar, was born in the city of Mumbai in 1967. He is one of the upcoming contemporary artists that our country is proud to have. In 1998, he pursued his diploma in Drawing and painting from the prestigious art college, L.S. Raheja School of art in Mumbai, and was a Gold medallist. He is married to artist Sujata Achrekar and he currently resides and works in Mumbai.

Sri. Vijay Achrekar has his own style of creating an artwork. His artworks are conventional with a touch of modernisation, that renders a very smooth and realistic depictions.

Apart from that, he also does marvellous abstract paintings. Sri. Vijay Achrekar’s artworks are mostly focussed on realistic depiction of women. The relaxed and graceful postures are portrayed perfectly despite his dynamic brush strokes.

In the recent years however, one can see a shift from his usual style to the usage of bright hues of the Indian palette. Taking inspiration from the gruesome 26/11 attacks in Mumbai and its aftermath, Sri Vijay Achrekar created artworks keeping in mind the traumatic circumstances post the attacks and came up with a series of paintings of Jesus Christ. These paintings were critically acclaimed  and stirred the hearts of the viewers.
