“A true work should have vitality. It is alive. It communicates, in subtle ways. It can recalibrate our consciousness”.
Tarun Sharma is a visual artist based out of Delhi. His practise involves use of colours in an awareness of the moment. Born to a Brahman family of doctors in Rajasthan, he spent his childhood in a medical college. The mortality of our bodies and ideas, and the interconnectedness of being have been a part of his life as a child. He stepped out of his parent’s home around 14 years back. With that, he stepped out of the belief systems he grew up with and acknowledgement of god.
With the world as his teacher, he has worked towards identifying self and dissolving it. He trained as an architect, an animator and a transportation and automobile designer. His practise of art in its pure, undiluted abstract form started as a process to break down these structures of perceptions he had gained, back to their granular origins.
As Tarun states, “A true work should have vitality. It is alive. It communicates, in subtle ways. It can recalibrate our consciousness.” His acknowledgment of being an artist brought back to him with it, the embrace of god. “Within each moment, there exists a touch of the divine. Within each moment, lies the bliss of creation and annihilation. To create, one has to lose the sense of self.”
Outside of art, Tarun Sharma has worked on a diverse portfolio of projects over the past 5 years. From yachts to railway locomotives to mobile apps, he has focussed on understanding, improving and designing the overall experience of an activity. The personal objective for Tarun has been to create authentic and empathetic products and spaces. He currently uses Delhi as the base to venture about on journeys tangible and intangible.
