About Aparna Deshpande 

A picture speaks a thousand words,’ goes a saying that Aparna Deshpande seems to prove absolutely right. A natural dancer with vivid imagination, Aparna, at a very young age, with limited scope for communication in a regular way, began to immerse in the world of colours that threw up enchanting visual stories. Supportive parents –Kalpana and D P Nerkar – identified her innate talent, at a very young age, and encouraged her to explore and experiment. Aparna, post her schooling, pursued a diploma course in interior designing and decoration from the noted L S Raheja College, Mumbai.

She practiced painting on various surfaces and played with Japanese papers in creating pop-up greeting cards by employing various permutations and combinations. Her journey into the world of art continued with cartoon illustrations, landscape and portrait paintings, she has now cocooned out of and into abstract and surrealism and is now making her own mark in these art forms. Comfortable with oils, acrylics, watercolours etc, Aparna finds her paintings to be the manifestations of her inner core and an expression of collective experience. Her paintings, at times, are projections of the unique feelings stored and imprinted in her heart. Lively bursts of passionate colours and bold strokes with delicate renditions in her paintings are a reflection of her unreserved, genial personality.

“God has infused Aparna with immense ability to speak through her paintings,” said celebrated cartoonist Mangesh Tendulkar. “The almighty has shut one door but opened a vast roof of aesthetics and creative talent to manifest and spread joy.”

Aparna paints to spread positive message in this world. Aparna’s collection titled “ Melodies of Nature “, is a beautiful amalgamation of nature, emotions and the divine. Her paintings start off with youthful shapes and colours and transform into a novel of thoughts. Her creative paintings and photo realistic pictures stand out for their size and quality. . Aparna orchestrates multiple figures and forms from nature, on the canvas, to give birth to another larger forms with underlying concepts. Her unique arrangements of human and natural elements mutate into mesmerizing treat for the eyes. One truly feels the need to keep revisiting her paintings, only to obtain a different perspective each time.
