Descended from a family of artists, Siddharth Kerkar is an Indian artist creating art since the young age of nine. His paintings in acrylic colours and sawdust present geometrical divisions of spaces with rich textures. Most of his paintings are abstract: the imagery comes from the Indian terrain that he likes watching from airplanes. The sculptures he creates are often made with found materials he uses to make conceptual works: he often explores the history and ancestry of materials in his work, he enjoys juxtaposing debris together and infusing them with ideas and narratives which enrich the value of the conceptual work.
He expresses himself through painting, video, installation and sculpture. His artworks have been exhibited in several galleries in India as well as in galleries internationally. He has also been a part of art fairs like Art Bengaluru, India and Algarve Artist Network art fair (Portugal).
Siddharth Kerkar is currently a student at Central Saint Martins in London continuing his studies in Fine Arts and Sculpture and continuing his studies in his studio in London as well as in Goa, India.
