Presenting an artist who has mastered the charcoal medium with unmatched brilliance and created beautiful figurative artworks, which have an element of the real & surreal.

The journey...

A post graduate in commerce, Gautam Patole chose to shift from being a photojournalist to an artist in 2009. His first love in arts was ceramic painting; but it was the charcoal medium that he managed to tame, transporting us to the bygone era of black & white. Gautam Patole's works are mostly figurative.

"A tint of colour adds beauty to the charcoal. I paint to give happiness to the viewers. The basic underlying goal of each of my work is to give joy to those who see my work," says the Artist.

The Artist's philosophy behind life & painting is based on what the renowned American Essayist & Poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) says,

“To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. “

Whilst one can describe the collection as figurative, the spectrum is broad as it covers traditional & sensual, feminine grace in its full essence, the innocence of children, the wisdom of the monks & also the animal kingdom. Each artwork is epic and narrates a story of its own.

Gautam Patole & his art have a persona and presence that engages you. The visual of each artwork evokes infinite beauty & substance. The Artist's strokes are powerful and speak in more ways than one. This is one time when the shades of black & white communicate in a multi-dimensional way and the viewer is quite simply in awe of each masterpiece.

This collection has the bearings of being the highlight, centre piece holding fort in your homes. Gautam's art has been appreciated & been part of the personal collection of various Bollywood stars to the likes of Amitabh Bachan, Anupam Kher, Sushmita Sen, Raageshwari Loomba, Riteish Deshmukh, Pooja Bedi, among others.

Gautam himself has been instrumental to promote many deserving Artists.

A stunning series of Buddha by Sarfaraz Laskari

Mindfulness transcends time and space and can be very empowering. Buddha used every opportunity to awaken, whether in daily life, in His blissful state or even during the death process. We can all choose to be on the path of conscious evolution on the journey.

Buddha is the world-renowned teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader who achieved enlightenment while meditating under a fig tree in ancient India. It is believed that by studying his calm gaze and serene posture, one may begin to unravel the mysteries of inner harmony and personal peace.

The lotus flower unfolding its petals symbolises one reaching a deeper state of consciousness, as the soul expands. It represents purity, divine beauty and encompasses all of life. It rises from muddy waters, symbolizing achieving spiritual enlightenment and breaking free from basic instinctive impulses. It evokes the idea of evolution with its slow ascent out of the mud.

Mindfulness has been the artists pursuit of passion & purpose. The icon of Buddha portrays you and me. Anyone with Buddhi; an awakened mind is a Buddha.

We launch this ethereal collection Mindfulness in the auspicious month of Vaishakh where, Buddhists pledge to lead a noble life according to the teaching by making daily affirmations to observe the precepts and train themselves to practice morality, simplicity and humility.

Buddhism nurtures a sense of determination to lead noble lives, to develop the mind, to practice loving-kindness and to bring peace and harmony to humanity. The artist believes that we are surrounded by inspiration and all we need is to choose the right lens. This collection is not just mere artworks of a painter, but his ongoing personal journey of awakening.

The realm of art represents so many things. Mindfuless series being reflective art, encourages you to find a connection. The purpose of this collection is to enhance the beauty of your space, to add the frequency of harmony & peace and to make you attentive. It is a homage to self, in the pursuit of conscious evolution.

Sarfaraz has created these paintings in a soothing pallete & beautiful blend of colours. Placing a Buddha at the entrance of a home is revered as auspicious; ushering in a sense of calm. When we are fully present in the moment, life itself can be enhanced and our soul nurtured, living and engaging with conscious choices. says curator Jalpa H Vithalani.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sarfaraz Laskaris painting has this unique luster which is deeply inspired by his experiences and his genetic roots. The artists philosophies are influenced by spiritualists like Eckhart Tolle, Rupert Spira, Mooji & Allan Watts.

Sarfaraz is an interior designer by profession and prefers the natural, simple, fresh & tranquil approach. His thoughts, feelings and creativity is fueled by his practice of art and music. As an artist, he makes use of multitude of mediums that include water colours, pen-ink, digital mediums, oils and acrylics on canvas.

The artist has showcased his works in a solo show in London that was very well received. This is his first solo show in India.

I constantly engage in opening my perception of life through awareness. quotes the artist. Adventurous if nothing else is a word to describe him. His artistic freedom showcases Buddhist perception, that everything is alive and influences everything else, revealing bio-spirituality.

THE ROYAL OPERA HOUSE Mumbai (ROHM) is widely touted as Mumbais Cultural Crown Jewel and Indias only surviving Opera House. The original idea for the space was conceived of in 1908, inaugurated in 1911 by King George V, and eventually completed in 1916. The design incorporated a blend of European and Indian detailing. The space became a cinema in later years before falling into disrepair and shutting by the 1990s. Fittingly, the space has been owned by the Royal Family of Gondal since 1952 and was eventually restored by conservation architect, Abha Narain Lambah under the leadership of the current Maharaja of Gondal, Shri Jyotendrasinhji. The Royal Opera House Mumbai, now one of the last remaining Baroque structures in the city, reopened after 23 years in October 2016. The building was included on the 2012 World Monuments Watch to raise awareness about its history and significance, and support preservation efforts. The restored facilities feature a 574-seater 3-level auditorium with an orchestra pit and state of the art technological upgradations, including acoustics, stagecraft, lighting and air-conditioning, alongside retaining the old world charm of the proscenium stage, the royal boxes and the magnificent regal chandeliers. Some more enhancements to the venue include a motorized screen, co-axial ceiling speaker system, Four-zone volume control and all round wifi access. Today, it stands as a key performance and creative hub in the citys cultural landscape, while being a premier heritage landmark. Facebook: www.facebook.com/royaloperahousemumbai/

Creative Head and Director of the gallery Jalpa H Vithalani, says, I had organised a program at Wilson College that was attended by 5,000-7,000 students. The Vice Chancellor of Mumbai University Sanjay Deshmukh was very impressed. And he had said that he would get Sir J.J. School of Art to collaborate and work closely with Cosmic Heart Gallery. At Cosmic Heart we believe in providing a platform for talent, so the synergies are perfect. I am very excited to host this show at the Gallery,

In this show the Masters students from the Sir J.J. School of Art have created the beautiful artworks that are on sale at the Gallery. Amalgamation is a confluence of art, ideas and sentiments translated powerfully by the masters in making is a show one must visit.

After a rigorous selection process, from thousands of applicants only 12 are chosen to be part of the Masters Program at the J.J. School. They come from small towns like Pali in Raigad, Halyal in Kolhapur, Salshirambe in Satara, Thakarwadi in Nanded and other places all across India with a passion to create. These student artists come from humble backgrounds with a desire to improve their lives through their art & are thrilled at the opportunity to have a show dedicated to them at the Cosmic Heart Gallery. One participating artist is deaf-mute yet expresses himself clearly through his art. This show is an acknowledgement to the incredible ability and creativity of these students & showcases the works of Anil Chouhan, Chandrakant Halyal, Chetan Pashilkar, Divya Ramrecha, Prakash Gaikwad, Prof. Vishwanath Sabale, Rutuja Divekar, Suraj Lohar and Vaishnavi Naik.
