Sujith Kumar G.S. Mandya:
Riding along the streets of Mysore, as an art student at Shree Kala Niketana School of Art, what haunted the imagination of Sujith Kumar was not the magnificent palace or the people moving without any hurry along the crowded streets of the laid-back city. Sure, he would sketch monuments and human faces to his heart’s content but rather than the beauty and solitude of humans it was the cycles and auto rickshaws that provoked Sujith’s imagination, thus kindling his creative power. “Cycle is a dream and a carrier of life for the rustic Indian middle class. Every time I look at the same cycle it appears to be a new one to me; in a way it is the cycle of life…” he says. “I can’t see any humanity in city life, there is no peace…. It’s all rat race, but in villages you see the real humanity living in peace…” In a way Sujith talks about going back to nature with his tiny images of cycles. Sujith Kumar’s “Traffic City” is a clever composition depicting in an abstract way the chaos of traffic in the city. The black lines are strong and cross hatched throughout the composition creating an abstract illusion of rush and mayhem. The use of a deep red adds to the title of the composition, though visually we cannot see the other elements, there seems to be a general feeling of unrest. All his compositions focus on one main theme and color and his excellent linear quality depicts the theme. “As a student in Mysore it was a routine for me to draw people, places and objects to my heart’s content,” says this young artist. “My concern had always been to create an object with minimum strokes.” Sujith’s cycle is riding back to nature. From the crowded city scapes to the lush green landscapes of serenity. It is a ride back to the never-ending green..
