Dr.Dattatreya Phadke is a self-taught artist.  He is a practising Histopathologist in Pune. He has been inspired by the varied textures and colours of fabrics. His journey of making fabric collages started about a decade ago while in the USA. Since childhood, while growing up in Pune, he has always been doing art in the form of drawings, painting and greeting cards for friends, family members etc.  He has displayed his vibrant fabric collages at many exhibitions and art shows while in USA, UK and recently in India and won public appreciation and applaud for his presentation. He has displayed his work in several prominent art exhibitions in Solo as well as group / invited / juried shows in cities in Michigan and Pennsylvania in USA and Darpan Art Gallery, Pune, India etc.  He has been awarded many prizes/awards and recognition from several art promotional institutions of international repute.

His works are in proud collection of many prominent art collectors.  His present series reveals a paint free paint like effect. These vibrant and colourful representational art works  have been made by him using multiple scraps of fabric as the colour palette. Various textured and coloured fabrics are cut into numerous pieces that are then either glued or fused using heat and bonding medium onto a canvas in layers till the desired shape, form and visual perspectives are achieved with relevant details. He has adorned his works with the essence of the beauty of nature and real life still objects.  He has endeavoured to blend the fabrics in such varied types and textures in unison to create this unique paint-free painting like visual effect in landscapes, floral and still life objects along with abstracts also being an interpretation of his creative mind and instincts.  His inspiration from childhood has developed into a passion and stress buster. It has won him a lot of appreciation and applause from the art loving community.
