    A A Almelkar

    Known for painting bold impressionist landscapes and medieval miniatures, AA Almelkar (1920- 1982) was born in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Almekar had begun drawing and painting at the young age of seven. He received his diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Sir JJ School of Art. Influenced by Walter Langhammer, N.S. Bendre, among other modern artists, it wasn't until 1995 that Almelkar had discovered his unique and compelling style.

    A major theme in Almelkar's work is nativity and indigenous subjects from where he drew his regular inspiration. The representation of tribal views is richly incorporated with earthly tones that immediately catch the viewer’s gaze. Vibrant village life is a common motif in his work. Optimistic and hopeful, Almelkar sustained the rejoicing picture of tribal routine, neglecting the harder and more abysmal moments.

    Almelkar’s career peaked in the 1960s and 70s, rendering Indian subjects with an experimental attitude and introducing modern techniques. Significantly, a sense of rhythm was prevalent, having sensible and bold undertones. Interestingly, Almelkar travelled through jungles, sketching trees, birds and everything nature had to offer. Figurative and naturalistic landscapes being his forte, the colour palette delivers a quaint quality to serene landscapes.

    Almelkar was an award-winning artist who was mentored by Khatri, a painter who resided in Gujarat. Khatri ingrained in him the pursuit of perfect draftsmanship during his adolescent years. Almelkar has been a recipient of multiple awards like the Governor's Award from Bombay Art Society and the Art Society of India. He had multiple posthumous exhibitions in New Delhi and Mumbai. Receiving international appreciation from Malaysia and other Asian capitals, Almelkar had also served as a lecturer at the J.J School. AA Almelkar had lived and worked in Pune, India.
