Indrajeet Chandrachud is a New York City based artist and designer. For the past two decades, Indrajeet has led a life focused on the visual arts — viz Design, Advertising, 3D Spaces and Painting.
Indrajeet’s paintings are based on architecture he has encountered in his travels within the USA, and to Latin America, Europe and India. Indrajeet’s minimal approach to art can be best explained by the following quote by French writer and poet, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away”
With this minimal approach to architectural landscapes, Indrajeet creates surreal, brightly coloured spaces within the canvas. His roots in eastern philosophies and cultures have increased his desire to communicate emotion with the use of form and colour. His work is generally quiet, orderly and meditative in its finished form and allows the viewers to place themselves in a painting and be lost in it. The purpose of his paintings is not to reproduce the likeness of an architectural form, but the emotion one feels from it.
In addition to a career as a promising artist, Indrajeet also serves as Vice President and Creative Lead at DraftFCB, New York.
