IN PURSUIT OF LIKENESS

Amit Gudadhe wants to be an Aeronautical Engineer. And to be on the safer side, he has kept an optional profession - architecture. Going by his keen interest and talent in drawing, architecture seems to be beckoning him more.

A Class 10 student at the Abu Dhabi Indian High School, Amit definitely has the spark of creativity which he keeps alive despite his academic pressures. "Being in Class 10 doesn't give me enough time to pursue art seriously. But I definitely like to carry on with my artistic endeavours atleast as a hobby for the time being," says Amit.

Amit is taking classes in drawing from Vrinda Kamath, a noted artist herself who has conducted various exhibitions in the capital. "He has found a very good teacher in Vrinda and I hope her guidance will help Amit a great deal in perfecting his talent," said Srikanth, Amit's father.

Amit's special fascination for portraits is quite obvious from his works. He has already finished drawing the portraits of several leaders and various Bollywood stars including Nana Patekar and Salman Khan. Perfect in details of features and minuteness of expression, Amit has largely succeeded in coming very close to the original. "Some portraits compel me to copy them for their intense expressions and outstanding features," says Amit. "My aim is to do an original portrait."

As a budding artist, Amit doesn't want to restrict himself to any particular type of drawing. He is continually experimenting with water colours, charcoal, pencil sketches etc. The picture of a shepherd boy in charcoal, a watercolour of an ethnic Indian woman etc are some of his works that speak volumes about Amit's talent. "I want to learn all aspects of drawing rather than confining myself to one genre. May be at a later stage, I will discover my forte and specialise in that," says Amit.
