The world has woken up to the new transactional idiom of NFTs and Indian stellar artist Paresh Maity’s NFT debut with Artexposure as owner, is a classic case of ownership with the physical asset as well as the digital in its pandemic creation historical The Perpetual Glare. This oil on canvas is an amalgamation of elements created on a buttercup yellow background in the rhythms and resonance of an abstract potpourri. The colors for Maity flow naturally with effortless ease and candor. It echoes a lyrical cadence from the sand dunes of Rajasthan and also alludes to the alchemy of sunrise. The title suggests the aftermath of the pandemic and the stamp of human suffering in its wake, but the buttercup yellow brings hope for humanity.
Paresh Maity’s oil on canvas A Morning on the NFT is a boon for the art lover who would like to covet the digital and physical painting of that abstract alchemy reflected in the ages of a crimson tide. Maity the traveling traveler is an early riser and often sits in his studio with his canvas painting the hues of nature’s brilliance in the many hues of the day as well as the hues of the cityscape he recreates. This work straddles the beauty of a thematic sojourn that combines the best of the multi-dimensional arcadia of a city that transcends time and tide. In the possession of an art collector, this work will be a testament to the harmony which must be felt in the transaction of both technology and the human desire for a master’s work.
Wedding Bell as an asset has a double benefit in NFT trading as the physical asset is also part of the transaction. This oil on canvas is an exposition of the Indian cultural fabric of the ritual of a wedding celebration. Maity’s bliss with both color and outline comes to the fore even as we see the hint of drama and feminine fervor in the confluence of the horse for the groom and the beauties dressed to the hilt.This work is warm and filled with the symphony of anticipation and cheerfulness as it reflects the mood of celebrating the balance and perfection of an evening wedding among its festivities. This work is again a glimmer of the many dimensions of Rajasthan in its incandescent aura.
The city never sleeps
City Never Sleeps by Paresh Maity is an oil and acrylic on canvas that presents itself as an NFT asset that whispers the nuances of the nocturnes just like a composition by Chopin that rocks the senses and draws you into its mouth. Maity is a master in her manipulation of oil and acrylic. His handling of the medium with a soft brush is what makes this work a must-see in both the mood and its many dramatic hues. Maity has a sensitivity towards the shades of day and the dispersion and absorption of light. He has always, in his 40 years of practice, created works that celebrate the dimensions and dynamics of multi-hued light. In more ways than one, he revives the moods and lyrical notes of his model JMW Turner whose work he studied as a student.
A glorious city
Paresh Maity’s banter with the city of Benares is one that echoes the beauty of Mark Twain’s words. “Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and seems twice as old as all of them put together.” And indeed it is in this work that brings to life not only the many elements that dot the landscape or the skyline of Benares, but the hint of the beauty of religious symbolism and the sound of songs and hymns that unravel notes of spiritual fervor like the setting sun. . Several thousand years old, Benares is the holiest of the seven sacred cities of India and Maity transcribes its unique dimensions.
