Buffalo head - master work study

A3, compressed charcoal.

This is a ref-based study after a sculpture by the (largely forgotten) genius Vinayak Karmarkar.

  • Akhila, Anupama - thanks a TON for faving this!

    Raj - I'm so honored that you clicked the link and explored the works (Btw, the sketches on that linked page itself are decade's old... the articles, however are relevant). A Big thank you! :)

  • Hi Prosenjit, what a treasure trove this "wrote about him" is... and just to explore all of your works here as well! am absolutely delighted!

  • Thank you so much Raj and Kiran!

    @ Kiran - yes indeed, @ powerful! I think he's one of the under-rated sculptures of the world, and perhaps more needs be done to spread the word that such a genius used to live and create amongst us in India. Someday, I intend to visit his studio, which is like a museum now at Sasavane (near Alibag, Maharashtra) and study his works in person, if I'd be kindly allowed to do that.

    About a decade or so ago, when I first discovered and wrote about him on my website, there was only sparse material available on the internet about him. In the subsequent years, my old article used to regularly come up near the top of the search list on google, which saddened me. But I'm glad to see that in recent years, more about him has been added on the net, including a wonderful video tour on youtube in 2012.

    There is great strength in subtlety of expression, and I think he's a king on that account!
