PKC specializes in oil paintings that focus on the creation of virtual reality with life in it. His paintings are based on wildlife, birds, human life and mystique realism. He currently lives in the Bronx, New York and his art studio is located in New Jersey. PKC, found his passion for art during his childhood years. A gifted child,
The dignity and humility that was instilled in PKC by his mother also reflects in his art work. When he paints a woman sitting alone, experiencing the bliss of solitude, “Light shining on her face alone in a dark portrait, I find it clean, efficient, well-lit and it brings out her real beauty, hidden within her soul” says PKC When one sees PKC’s paintings based on wildlife, human life or surreal mystique paintings, one cannot help but wonder where he draws his passion from. “I always loved exotic animals and human life from different eras, so eventually my passion was drawn to it and I’m lucky enough to paint it with a god given talent so realistically, whilst bringing awareness among people about wildlife conservation through my beautiful pieces” says PKC
Though he loves realism, PKC is an evolving artist, he likes to experiment. “As time went on, I felt I should add a new style to my gallery by combining realism with mystique effects. In fact, I think I’ve gone one step further doing this to discover myself with a new term `Mystique Realism’ that I am totally fascinated by” says PKC
Yet, PKC’s core style of art is realism. “Realism is very detailed, it takes a lot of hard work and time” Despite this, what attracted PKC towards realism is his passion to be close to the reality of life. “I want to live in a world of reality where I can see the amazing variation of landscapes, wildlife, trees and plant life, and the sense of calm and peace which inspires me to realism” says PKC.
Realism is one of the oldest forms of art, which originated in the 16th century. During those times it was widely loved and appreciated. History has time and again repeated itself. Take for instance fashion, youth have adored the ancient sense of fashion and combined it with the modern one. So, in this era of abstract, modern art, it is difficult to say if realism will ever be considered as a popular mainstream form of art. “A brilliant illusionism, and grand sensuous style of old tradition were considered as a greatest strength of the old masters since the 16th century. By the 21st century, drastically that kind of strength is diminishing at a higher rate as modern art (like abstract or semi-abstract) dominated realism to play a vital role on the present younger generation” says PKC
Art has the ability to connect with people and also bring about change. When PKC was asked how realistic paintings can be used to bring progress in developing countries. he said “Artists change the world every day by comprehending higher levels of awareness around the globe. Painting has no language barrier and it depends primarily on visual stimulation.Through art, you can surely communicate in third world countries in common ways that are more easily understood, since art speaks out universally”“Art finds ways to fight poverty and alleviate the suffering of the global poor. Art can help provide employment and income by having non-profitable programs that benefit the poor from sold artworks . Realistic paintings, of course carries messages on every topic which can be shared, debated, discussed, bringing us in effect closer together with poverty, climate change, ecosystem and wildlife conservation” PKC said PKC has won the World’s Highly Honored Realism Artist Award from Art Renewal Center Museum in the US. He has been featured in America’s 4th largest newspaper the New York Daily News and Satellite Channel TV ASIA.
