Deepak Shinde – a Sir JJ School of Fine Art Alumnus, has spent over Four decades committed to painting; holding on steadfastly to his beliefs unmindful of changing currents. His work is unique and thought-provoking. That this artist is firmly grounded at his roots is very apparent in his work. Deepak Shinde was born in rural India in a household that nurtured familial ties and nature in the fields, forests, and the elements. His paintings have always featured people in all walks of life and in relationships. Ecological concerns have been an on-going frame of which he places his points of view. Currently endearing images of the tiger urge a sensitive response to endangered species and the painful abuse to nature.

  • The phenomenal events or situations he constructs are never complete with descriptive details and the events never happen on sequential planes. The figurative images are transparent; one can see through them. Deepak‘s painted characters move, as if not on their volition. They daze with eyeless stares and engage the viewers‘ gaze to their stares of existence.

    Pranabranjan Ray – Senior Art Critic
  • Deepak Shinde‘s basic instinct is to celebrate colour. Not in the spirit of an orgy where there is a mindless daubing, smearing, and splashing, but rather in the spirit of commemoration : honouring colour in flesh and in spirit, guiding it, leading it to conquer and to accomplish and bringing it into its own.

    Abhay Sardesai – Editor, ARTIndia Magazine
  • Shinde treads the narrow line between the myth of grandeur and the squalor it survives on, reminding us of basics we would like to sweep under the carpet.

    Suneet Chopra – Senior Art Critic
  • Very few Indian artists have depicted animals and their behavior on their canvasses. The domestic animals of Ram Kinkar Baij, the familiar horses of MFHusain, and the stylized animals of Manjit Bawa and Jai Zharotia come to mind. But these animals are depicted not in their anatomy but in a context not of their making. Shinde‘s animal world on the other hand is autonomous.

    Mangalesh Dabral – Senior Art Critic & Poet
  • Deepak Shinde‘s work is a bacchanalia of colour, held in rein by the spare discipline of an intelligence that is equally at home in an abstractionist, and a figurative idiom. Shinde does not set out to compose a piece; preferring a painting to happen, he allows memories, observations, snatches of conversation, to swim about in his subconscious, until the moment of definition comes, and the canvas shapes itself.
