About Vikrant Bhise

Vikrant Bhise was born in Mumbai in India in 1984. Having grown up and inspired by his hometown Mumbai. The frantic fast paced daily life in the city. Throughout his life, Vikrant has always been fascinated by the city and the crowd.

Vikrant has completed his G.D. Art from Raheja School of Art, Bandra and completed diploma in art education from the renowned J.J. School of Art, Mumbai in 2011.

After completing his degree, Vikrant delved even more into his studio practice, which involved human and his everyday life around him. Struggles of the common man, racialism, communalism and the changes in the attitudes of the society are some of the themes that appear throughout his work. His works, his expressions on paper or canvas are like his daily diary. It’s his response to the increasing violence in the society.

His view is that an unhealthy sense of competitiveness has permeated society, and man is forgetting his humanity as a result. People are becoming increasingly insensitive to the increase in violence, morbidity, and ethnic strife. He combines these stark and often sensitive subjects with a contemporary Indian aesthetic, and innovative media experiments such as paper cutting and collages.

Vikrant has received many state and national awards in India.  All India Fine Arts & Crafts Society Award, New Delhi 2018, The Indian Academy of Fine Arts Silver Award, Amritsar 2018, Art Society of India Award, Mumbai 2017, The Maharashtra State Art Award 2016 and many more. He has also been awarded with India’s most prestigious award “Lalit kala Academy, National Award” in 2018 and also have received rare Bombay Art Societies “Gold Medal” in 2018.

Vikrant lives and works in Mumbai, India. His day today depictions will hopefully document an evolving society during a period of challenge and change, and inspire and influence generations to come.
