Prafulla Dahanukar Back To Artist Profile
Prafulla is born in Goa and qualified from the Sir J.J.School of Art, Mumbai. Prafulla's abstracts are buoyant and luminescent. Line, color and volume create meditative expanses for the viewer. The minimalist works reflect the artist's perspective of nature and man. The palette knife excavates the pigment; the roller pulls it in multi-layered, expanding bands. The multiple levels/ bands are also suggestive of the various planes of emotional experience. The work bears the imprint of spontaneity and energy reflecting the spirit of the artist. Prafulla is the President of Bombay Art Society and Vice Chairman of the Artists' Center, Mumbai. For last 30 years she has been on the committee of Kala Akademi Goa, and also is the President of the Art Society of India. She was a committee member of the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, from 1974-79.
