Parag Sonarghare

Born in Nagpur, India, he currently lives in Vadodara. Parag was trained in Nagpur University and the Maharaja Sayajirao University, Vadodara. His academic journey traverses a practice-based Bachelor’s degree and a move towards art history and aesthetics in his Masters studies. Being a painter he has also ventured into performances where he has explored ideas like identity, rethinking, revisiting and redefining established concepts. In painting mainly identity, one’s existence in a certain context, masquerading towards finding oneself were his concerns. His experiments have included work in Indian tradition of body painting, taking inspiration from Indian mythological painting and turning it upside down into neo mythological visuals.
