B.Ajay Sharma is a contemporary visual artist, who formally studied painting in Indian’s two renowned art institutions. However, his works cover a wide range of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, and conventional and revived techniques of photography, durational and site-specific installations, as well as new technologies. He takes drawing as a vehicular aspect of his thoughts. Elaborating on the the notion of Bhava, performance and alternative photography enable him to engage with external space as opposed to his internal visual thoughts. He has been exploring ‘THE YOGA VASHISTA’ for many years, and works on the concept of breathe as a unit of his unitary existential visual currency.
