Purshottam Pawar, Mumbai

Purshottam uses paintings to express his emotions and feelings in his work. He chooses subjects inspired by observing everyday events and objects.  His works consist of depth, space division, sensitiveness, motion, values and colour scheme.  Through his works, he aims to understand himself better.

This project aims to represent the ‘third gender’ in his paintings and bust the myths about transgender persons that people find hard to accept. Inspired by Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits, he intends to embed himself in these works. The work aims to build bridges between genders by focussing on the everyday issues of his subjects like civil rights, employment, health care and adoption rights.
