Artist's Profile
Prabhakar Kolte
Prabhakar Kolte-Monart Gallerie - Indian Artists Gallery
His early canvases are characterized by a single, dominant color in the background, on which lighter and more complex forms, both geometric and organic, are placed.

Kolte freely acknowledges his early debt to Klee, stating in an interview that “In those days people used to call me the Indian Paul Klee”.

His most recent works show a glossier, more finished approach to his early themes in paintings. The strong ground colour remains, but this time both it and the forms overlaid onto it retain crispness in line and colour: the "weathering" inherited from Klee has dropped out in favor of more finished - and thus more abstracted - fields of colour.

Kolte spent twenty-two years teaching at his alma mater, the J. School of Art. He retired in 1994, and now devotes his time to painting.
