Abstract landscapes of Vinay Sane
Exploring nature and peace through his abstract landscape paintings
Vinay’s painting efforts have also been greatly influenced by the tranquil surroundings of his ancestral home in Wai, Maharashtra, a place he keeps returning to, to spend many hours on the banks of the beautiful Krishna river. He finds peace and an inner spiritual experience through his abstract landscape paintings. His expressions on canvas in the form of abstract landscapes or nature paintings are interpretations of his surroundings felt from his heart. At times he even feels they are a reflection of his soul. His abstract landscape paintings are a culmination of his thoughts, his emotions and his ideas.
Themes he likes to paint
Vinay’s first love is pure play abstracts. After tinkering with acrylics on canvas, he is going back to oil on canvas. He feels that the medium of oil on canvas will give me more time and freedom to explore. Acrylic medium forces an artist to work at a high pace, which he distastes at times. His next frontiers will be oil on canvas. He is going back to abstracts, and concept based paintings, with spirituality thrown in there, as a cross-linked polymer.

Further he worked with Chartered Semiconductor, Micron Semiconductor, and Texas Instruments during his stay in Singapore.
Photography is his first love. He gets very excited when he gets an opportunity to photo-shoot, especially, landscapes and mountains, and seasides. Furthermore, he has recently developed a liking for writing, mainly his childhood memories spent in Wai, Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar.
Master artists such as Van Gogh, Monet, Rembrandt, Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Carlo Carra, Rene Magritte, Wassily Kandinsky, Renoir, Bhalchandra Mandke, Jehangir Sabavala, Amrita Sher-Gil have been lasting influences for Vinay.
