About Nilesh Vede

Nilesh Vede, one of India’s finest young contemporary artists, describes Selfie as a documentation of his own personal journeys within himself. But the fact is Selfie touches a deep rooted quivering chord already within each one of us. The large square canvases, finely modeled textured faces staring straight into the viewers’ eyes, or downcast in deep thought, hold one’s attention and don’t let it go. And as one looks back at those eyes, one is drawn in into the finer nuances of digging within, almost like rediscovering secrets about oneself..

Using canvases rarely ever less than a meter wide, and a palette consisting predominantly of gold, silver and aquamarine, Vede has over the past 11 years created a story telling style in acrylic painting that is unflinchingly his, and his alone. A student from L.S. Raheja School of Arts and Sir J.J. School of Arts, Mumbai, his work has since found a place in the collections of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and various Bollywood celebrities including Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, and Hrithik Roshan, to name a few.
