Sunil Lohar Back To Artist Profile
He is born in 1983. He has earned his MFA in Painting from Hyderabad Central University, Hyderabad (2007) and BFA in Painting from MMK College of Visual Art, Gulbarga, Karnataka (2004). Sunil’s imagery is composed of multiple openings on the pictorial plane, simultaneously depicting objects from diverse contexts. Yet, they are connected as a dialogue between the eye, and the memory. These are images from European art-history (books) along with his own self- portrait; as well as art and craft objects collected at home (Gulbarga), both referring to ‘popular’ genre- in a rather unsaid manner. Unsaid because, his stance is not about the insensitivity that gets created through the magnified presences of these objects in our local markets (on the web, and interiors of Karnataka). It is rather about how he reflects upon the existing culture through post-colonial- academic-knowledge-base. 

He has got Bodhi Art Award, Mumbai (2007), National Scholarship, New Delhi (2005-2007), Silver jubilee Celebration of Gulbarga University, Gulbarga (2005), Youth Festival Award, Gulbarga University, Gulbarga (2003), Gold Medal in 2nd All India Exhibition, A P (2002). His works are with several private and corporate collections in India and abroad.
