Creativity connects the traditional and the contemporary, in Dr Chinmay Mehta’s works. As he cherishes the facility to work in diverse media, sizes, and techniques over a stylistic conformity to a single medium, genre, size, technique, and manner of visualization; he creates a different form of expression in art, architecture and culture. Dr Chinmay Mehta is noted internationally for his innovative contribution to preserving and celebrating the rich heritage of Rajasthan. For the last forty years he has been holding solo and joint shows that have been applauded by both media and art connoisseurs throughout the world. Strength of his paintings is a vividness of expression born of conceptual clarity, and this quality has made him so enormously popular with the viewers. He has provided a broader base to the art of modern India by enriching it with ethnic substances.
Chinmay, meaning the one possessed of blissful consciousness and intelligence, combines in himself the liberating Vidya (education) and humbling Kala (arts)- a painter, designer, architect and academician all rolled into one. As an artist, he is extraordinarily versatile, cherishing the facility to work in diverse media, sizes, and techniques over a stylistic conformity to a single medium, genre, size, technique, and manner of visualization. His paintings give Indian forms of art their very own identity and change, an understanding of what it means to create art, and more specifically Indian art, in a globalized world.
