Name : B O Shailesh
Born in 1970, in the town of Shimoga in Karnataka, BO Sailesh works with the multifaceted and composite feelings and emotions that human beings experience and express. As he admits, many of these explorations deal with the experiences of his youth, and the searching nature of a young man who finds everything in his environment interesting or noteworthy. The curiosity of a young and bright mind is one of the ideas this artist explores the most in his work. Abstracted human forms reach out with their hands to touch and feel what lies around them and to find someone to share their youthful passion and excitement with. Thin and elongated bodies seem to notice nothing around them, engrossed as deeply as they can be in what seems an eternal search for new connections and mates. Shailesh has painted on paper, glass and canvas using all sorts of varied media, including most recently even foil and paper thread. Some of his paintings are made up of four distinct pieces of canvas and some of two. My work explores the experience of my youth - shyness, love, eroticism, rebellion, visions of freedom and confusion. My paintings are memories made manifest."
