The art of Kartikey Sharma

Acrylic on canvas

My name is Kartikey Sharma, "I am 27 years old, I have always been an artist but couldn't take any formal art education due to my upbringing in a conservative middle class family. I pursued mechanical engineering and during college I decided to make art my career. I knocked doors of an esteemed art university in Mumbai and when they couldn't accommodate me in any official manner I started sitting in their classes quietly, without disturbing anyone or painting, but rather just observing. 

From there my journey as a professional artist began. In the past 7 years I have had many solo exhibitions independently organised and have had a fulfilling career as a mural artist. I have over a 100 canvas paintings to my name and over 150 commissioned mural/graffiti projects. I also started a small art firm in 2016 with 2 partners to organist our art business. I recently quit as the director of the company to better explore myself as an artist. I have started 2 major projects of painting the complete city (100 walls) of Bangalore and Pune with murals which is half way into completion. I am thankful to have been featured by every leading newspaper in India for my work. More on Kartikey Sharma

01 Painting, Streets of Paris, by the artists of their time, Part 66 - With Footnotes

Eugène Galien-Laloue, French, 1854-1941
Communiantes a Paris

Private collection

Communicants are people who partake or are entitled to partake of the Eucharist; a member of a church.

Eugène Galien-Laloue (1854–1941) was a French artist of French-Italian parents and was born in Paris on December 11, 1854. He was a populariser of street scenes, usually painted in autumn or winter. His paintings of the early 1900s accurately represent the era in which he lived: a happy, bustling Paris, la Belle Époque, with horse-drawn carriages, trolley cars and its first omnibuses. Galien-Laloue's works are valued not only for their contribution to 20th-century art, but for the actual history, which they document. His work can be seen at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Louvier; Musée des Beaux-Arts, La Rochelle; Mulhouse, France.

A typical Galien-Laloue painting depicts sidewalks and avenues crowded with people or tourists mingling before the capital's monuments. He also painted the landscapes of Normandy and Seine-et-Marne, as well as military scenes he was commissioned to produce in 1914. The Republic of France selected Galien-Laloue to work as a 'war artist,' both during the Franco-Prussian War and World War I, chiefly in watercolor. More on Eugène Galien-Laloue

01 Painting, Streets of Paris, by the artists of their time, Part 65 - With Footnotes

Pierre Bonnard, (1867-1947)
Rue Tholozé, c. 1915
Oil on canvas
21 7/8 x 15 1/8 in. (55.5 x 38.3 cm.)
Private collection

Tholozé Street is one of the trendy streets of the Abbesses district. It owes it's celebrity to it's proximity to Montmartre, and  the Moulin de la Galette. This street, 185 meters long and 8 meters wide, owes its name to a general who was famous during the conquest of Algeria, Henri Alexis Tholozé (1781-1853).

Pierre Bonnard (3 October 1867 — 23 January 1947) was a French painter and printmaker, as well as a founding member of the Post-Impressionist group of avant-garde painters Les Nabis. Bonnard preferred to work from memory, using drawings as a reference, and his paintings are often characterized by a dreamlike quality. The intimate domestic scenes, for which he is perhaps best known, often include his wife Marthe de Meligny.

Bonnard has been described as "the most thoroughly idiosyncratic of all the great twentieth- century painters", and the unusual vantage points of his compositions rely less on traditional modes of pictorial structure than voluptuous color, poetic allusions and visual wit. Identified as a late practitioner of Impressionism in the early 20th century, Bonnard has since been recognized for his unique use of color and his complex imagery. More on Pierre Bonnard
