About Gautam Patole
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.
"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.
'Kala Ghodas' - A stunning collection of Equine Art. Ongoing show
A stunning equine collection in charcoal by the Master Artist, Gautam Patole.
Cosmic Heart Gallery completes a milestone of three incredible years and the gallery moves forward widening their concepts and vision with a passion and vigour; the horse & this equine collection is indeed symbolic.
Each show curated at Cosmic Heart has an underlying purpose & message. The latest show is to celebrate this magnificent, powerful animal – THE HORSE. Horses symbolize personal drive, passion, transcendent freedom, independence, epic power of mind, body & spirit, trusting relationships, service to others & self.
“The artworks bring to life the pulse of the royal sport of Polo and stimulate an adrenaline rush. Gautam has captured every mood of this beautiful animal - strength, power, gentleness & love. Among all the animals, it is one that shows a strong motivation that carries one through life. It also stands for freedom of expression," says Jalpa H Vithalani, Creative Head & Director, Cosmic Heart Gallery, who has curated the show.
This encapsulates in a nutshell the journey and evolutionary path of Cosmic Heart Gallery to touch people’s lives via the medium of art.
“Horses enthrall so many with their vigor and such is their strength that an engine's capacity is decided on the basis of 'horse power', says Gautam.
“I have tried to bring out the emotions in my works of this beautiful animal even the tenderness of joy and romance. Moreover, their physique is also very stunning which intrigues me and has been translated on canvas.”
The curator Jalpa herself is passionate about horses & riding.  Cosmic Heart Gallery had recently curate a stunning Equine Art show for the RINALDI POLO TOURNAMENT at the Rambagh Polo Grounds in Jaipur. The event was inaugurated by Princess Diya Kumari, who has displayed one of the stunning artworksat the City Palace in Jaipur.With players of the stature like Maharaj Narendra Singh of Jaipur, Rinaa Shah, Vicki Nihalani, Vishal Singh playing for & supporting the cause, the initiative indeed was to support & encourage sportsmanship for young polo guns in the country. The gallery has been committed to partnering with meaningful concepts.
This exhibition is timed to be launched just prior to the renowned Kala Ghoda Festival which is a cultural hub in city of Mumbai and The McDowell Signature Indian Derby.
