NEERAJ GOSWAMI

Born 1964, Patna

Master of Arts (Painting), Delhi College of Arts, New Delhi
Bachelor of Arts (Painting), Delhi College of Arts, New Delhi

Neeraj has made the medium of oils his own achieving a brilliance and vibrancy that is outstanding. Using tones of Celadon Porcelain and Onyx Styrations, Neeraj Goswami gives his canvases a gentle radiance. His paintings glow like precious stones with translucence rarely seen. Through this sheer haze his characters come alive almost as if they are ready to walk out of the canvas. The vitality and life-like images of his paintings have made Neeraj Goswami one of the most sought after artists of his generation
