Ramachandra Kharatmal (1977) a Pune based realist painter has come a long way in his journey in the sensitive creative pursuit. Basically belonging to Solapur, Ramachandra has now dedicated himself to Art in a full-fledged way and is a freelancing artist. Ramachandra basically is a realist of immense ability to represent forms and shapes in all their glories when viewed against a fixed source of light. His colours are rich and abundant. He expresses his ironies with the contrasts and juxtaposition of colours and images. He has unbelievable control over the contours of the human form. He has this ability to express subtle messages through the image of a mere pair of old hands. The brevity of his imagery is his forte but the same is camouflaged by the richness of his colours. The warmth of the touch that elaborates tender illusion and intermingled the colours along with the past memories are the features of an orthodox quilt. Entangled state of mind with golden memories of the past, blossoming shapes, rhythmic figures and resplendent and splendid interwoven of colours, denoting the past are the other features of a quilt. Ramchandra beautifully blossoms this quilt in the contemporary world of colours and makes it perpetual on the canvas with the same warmth and past memories. When we look at his paintings, they influence us eternally.
