Siddharth Parasnis’ works are inspired by a vast archive of architectural images that he collects during his travels. He translates the rustic architectural structures on to the canvas, abstracting and simplifying them in order to strike a balance between likeness and abstraction. Parasnis’ work resonates on both an abstract and representational level, which makes them familiar and foreign at the same time. Born in India, Parasnis received his B.F.A. from the Directorate of Art, Bombay, India and then received his M.F.A. from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.
Parasnis has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world. His work has been included in exhibitions at the Crocker Art Museum, Coos Art Museum and the Art Museum of Los Gatos. Siddharth Parasnis’s works are held in permanent collections in many corporate and public collections including Galesburg Civic Art Center, Galesburg, IL; South Central Cultural Zone Center, Nagpur, India; and The Kidney Group, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
