GIVING LIFE TO STONE

I’ve always loved outdoor installations, dream catchers, and art made with stones, so Yash’s work was hard to miss given his connection to nature, spirituality, and beauty. I meet this wonderful man in the lush valley, with deep gorges cut out by rives crashing down the mighty mountains in Tosh.
Yash P Ganedikar, a 37 year old gentleman, who is skilled at making and mixing music, makes dream catchers, a party decorator, makes string art patterns and last but not the least, turns river stones into Meditative Mandalas with endless patterns of colorful dots. For Yash, “Art is a spiritual process for as it connects him to who he really is his essence”. He expressed, “Each Mandala I create is like a picture of my “Self” in that specific moment in time. I always found a certain comfort in art”. Through intense detail and rhythmic patterns, the artist finds meditation in painting these found stones with endless acrylic dots. The acrylic paint used on his pocket-sized creations allows him to add an element of dimension in him already layered colors. These intense colors create a palette so crisp and brilliant; it is as if the stones are crusted with trinkets.
