S Harsha Vardhana

Biography from Saffronart

Harsha Vardhana was born in 1958 in New Delhi.  He completed his Post Graduation in Bio-Sciences from the Birla Institute of Science and Technology, Pilani and also has a Diploma in Business Management.  For many years he held senior management positions in the bio-medical Industry.

S. Harsha Vardhana gave up a successful career as a Bio-Scientist in 1993 to pursue his love for painting, a passion that remained a mere hobby for many years.  Son of the late modern master J. Swaminathan, Harsha Vardhana's inclination towards an artistic practice seemed almost natural.  This self-taught artist displays his vast creative vocabulary in his heavily textured but plainly coloured canvases.

Deeply influenced by tribal art and symbols, Harsha Vardhana creates abstract geometrical forms; inverted triangular structures are constructed within carefully demarcated areas of colour, which violently cut into one another - some blend in while others create obvious scars, bringing a distinctive character to the piece.
