Yashwant B Shirwadkar, Indian (1951 - ), Email yshirwadkar gmail.com Mobile +91 9820144640 Yeshwant Shirwadkar was born in Mumbai in 1951. In 1977 he received a diploma in art, specializing in drawing and painting, in Maharashtra. Since then Shirwadkar has been prolifically exhibiting his impressionistic landscapes. Oil on canvas is this artist`s favourite medium, although he has painted several watercolour works as well. Sometimes a palette knife instead of the regular brushes serves as a tool in helping him to create his realistic landscapes.
He is extensively traveled and has held solo exhibitions of his work in Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi, Varanasi, Cochin, France, Germany, London, Luxembourg, Belgium, Nepal, Switzerland and the United States of America. In 2000, he held his 50th one-man show at the Artpilgrim Gallery in New Delhi. At the same time he has participated in group shows too both in India and abroad. His works are also regularly included in domestic and international auctions of Indian Art, breaking records at auction houses like Sotheby`s and Christie`s.
