Statement

Inside this vast universe there is "you," a diminutive part of what makes the universe. What surrounds the universe are different layers of things loosely termed good, bad and ugly. An artist is well aware of this reality. 
 
Symbolic of this turmoil, Kashi's paintings take the form of surrealism capturing a real and imaginative state of the human mind. He continuously examines the tendency of inherent narcissism in humans and the effects it has on materialism through the issue of appearance versus reality. His works display worldly ambition and desire and the way in which such aspirations manifest into conflict with the inner self.  Gradually, desire becomes an endless struggle for each person who has come into this world. His series of works capture the unseen faces of people hidden underneath what appears to be beautiful yet treacherous facades. 
 
The composition of his work draw from a multitude of experiences such as surrealism, the internal architectural designs of South Indian temples and Sufi music.


Biography

Born in June, 1976 in a semi-urban town of Jamui, Bihar, Suraj kumar kashi knew he wanted to be an artist since childhood. Armed with a Bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the Art College, Patna and a Master’s degree from College of Art, Delhi University in 2003, Suraj started out in an advertising world where, as an art director in Ogilvy & Mather, he churned out creative lines for many multinational brands. After two-and-a-half-years he realized his calling was always with the paint and brush. He chucked up his job and began painting full time. Sufi music and temples inspire his work. He lives in New Delhi. His maiden solo show was on landscape, held in Himachal Pradesh immediately after college.
