An interesting technique invented by Bendre who is incidentally also an architect and town planner by qualification, the current series are result of painstaking work. First, the artist creates his layered works on canvas. Then he cuts them and from three to four paintings, lets the triangles and squares create their own colour-co-ordinated spaces and emerge as unique forms on plywood. For, Bendre finds great excitement in communicating through the element of graphic forms, complete with negative and positive forms and spaces. Credit: Varinder chawla

An avid golfer for the last two and half decades, Bendre seeks his inspiration from the nature and the vast expanse of the lush greens, an unending motivator for both his passions – golf and art. Each work of Bendre takes a minimum of three weeks of painstaking work, if not more. Credit: Varinder chawla

"As an artist, you merely create and enjoy the process. When people love it, you feel good," says Bendre simply as he begins experimenting on his next series with enamel on copper. Credit: Varinder chawla
