Painting the Truth

Visual Artist and Filmmaker Tushar Waghela talks about various social issues through his work – whether it is his recent series “Anna Hazare: Pages from my diary, India against corruption” where he captures the latest revolution of 72-year old Anna Hazare standing strong to fight corruption in India; or his series Land Sold where he depicts the fate of the farmers and how the face of earth is changing. His work has been appreciated and exhibited in many countries across the world.

Here are a few intense and thought-provoking paintings from both the series:
Cleansing the nation

 

Tushar also likes to use the medium of short films to talk about the issues he feels passionate about. In his latest short film Phantom of a Fertile Land, he talks about the pain of the farmers who are thrown out of their land in the name of development. Here is the DVD cover and the trailer of the film.
