Sept. 19, 2011 - PRLog -- India, September 15, 2011- IndianArtCollectors.com, an online platform for Indian contemporary artists and art connoisseurs, announces Gagan Vij as its Artist Of The Fortnight, whose art-works would be on display from September 16th, uptill September 30th.Gagan Vij’s journey as a sculptor began at a very young age; he was 13 when he cast his first bronze sculpture. After many years of dabbling in sculpting, he finally gave up all other obligations to concentrate fully on his calling. “I always wished to be a sculptor. There were many artists around me who gave up sculpting, to take up painting. But I was motivated on sticking to it. I still am,” explained Gagan.Gagan’s sculptures are mostly made of metals; bronze in particular, to which he says— “Metals have a long shelf-life. I wish to be remembered for ages to comes, and my work makes me immortal.”The fifteen day long display of Gagan's work will showcase sculptures of human figures, expressing different emotions and forms. The artist thinks human anatomy is his comfort zone and he wishes to keep exploring it. He also feels that there is a connection between all humans and that is what he likes to showcase. Talking about his experience in being associated with IndianArtCollectors.com, Gagan shares “I get a very positive vibe from IndianArtCollectors.com. It's user friendly and very transparent. I am sure the website will manage our works in the best way possible.”

About Gagan Vij

Born in 1971, Gagan Vij's study as a fashion design, a period of apprenticeship under renowned sculptor Radhakrishnan and a brief stint as an art teacher have all helped Gagan to master form, technique, intensity and skills required to be a successful sculptor. Capturing figures in their moments of contemplation, he plays with clay and wax and works on the textures and balances to get the required angular movements. An artist of great promise, he is making his presence felt in the contemporary Indian art scene. He has shown his works at several exhibitions, and has also undertaken commissions for a number of private collectors, institutions and site-specific public projects. He has created bronzes ranging from a miniature size of half an inch to larger than life size monumental works. Gagan has received much acclaim for his public art works, including the busts of renowned Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib, and Lala Lajpat Rai and a large sculpture of Raja Suraj Mal commissioned by the Delhi Development Authority and the Government of Delhi.
