London artist Rajan Seth has been creating waves with his atmospheric abstracts. A qualified accountant, Rajan become abundantly aware that his chosen career path lay not in numerical spreadsheets, but in complex canvases; his analytic mind had a creative calling that he simply could not ignore.
His unconventional style of ‘painting without a paintbrush’, using tools such as palette knifes and paint scrapers allow him to build layers, texture and contrast into each of his pieces. Combining this with his passion for incorporating metallic colours into his work and his use of mixed media has enabled him to develop a unique approach which has become notable for its soft yet compelling structure.
“There is something intriguing about the way metallic colours reflect off a canvas from different angles. This adds new dimensions not only to the piece, but also to the interior space in which the piece is hung and is something I incorporate in almost all of the works. My inspiration is drawn from my surrounding environment. Painting is about feeling, and I want people to draw different conclusions when they see my work”.
With his work most recent pieces being showcased in Vogue magazine (January 2020), his rise has come organically, and it's easy to see why he is developing a notable following.
