Any self-respecting contemporary and modern art collector would widen their eyes at the mention of Bhanu Achan. The rule-bending artist throws conformity out the window in the Red Movement II, harmonising bright reds against beige. Solid forms and figures are utilised to trigger one’s imagination. Noting the artist’s love for natural themes, it seems that the artist is painting the sun and highlighting its effervescent nature through the use of bright hues.
