Subodh Kerkar

Subodh Kerkar has a powerful bond with Goa’s sea that he describes as both his “master and muse”. The sea is both an internal and external presence and the driving force behind the Goan painter, sculptor and installation artist’s out-of-the-box works, that are often crafted from motley materials like sand, shells, boats, bones, and discarded plastic bottles. Kerkar works with a range of media, from paintings and sculptures to installations on Goa’s seashores. His art captures the oceanic spirit and essence of Goa, and its natural beauty, while also highlighting political and social issues.
