DR. VIDHYASAGAR UPADHYAY
Vidyasagar Upadhyay is the recipient of the National Award for Painting in 1981, All India Award by UP State Akademi in 1984. He served as an executive board member for National Akademi of Fine Art - New Delhi. Widely travelled, he has held over 35 solo shows in India and participated in significant group exhibitions around the globe. His works are with collectors across the globe including Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka.
Upadhyay’s works unfold many realities and abstractions, with a perfect symphony of colours. His abstractions have now explored the extreme limits of non-figuration. This has made him move away from square and rectangular compositional compact to circular ones. They are also layered with a variation of meaning. He has executed these works with dry pastel, graphite, watercolour and acrylic paints. His works radiate luminosity for this reason.
