to me is a happening and performance, an instant plunging, flirting and
merging, with life, with it’s being and becoming it. All that is there
on the canvas is but a charge in celebration."
Ambadas was born in Akola, India in 1922. He received his diploma from the J.J. School of Art, Mumbai in 1952.
His works are influenced by the constant and innate movement in nature,
which leads to a crescendo of optimal expression. He is preoccupied
with getting beyond the surface into a formless, abstract reality, where
the artist’s intentions play no part.
Ambadas has held several solo and
group exhibitions in India as well as internationally. The Lalit Kala
Akademi has felicitated him with the prestigious National Award in 1963.
Ambadas passed away in May, 2012 in Oslo, Norway where he had been staying.
