Aditya’s works are influenced by the amalgamation of nature and urban life. He captures the tumultuous energy of crowded spaces while maintaining an equilibrium in his compositions. His works evoke contemplation about individuality and the roles we play within the broader society. Primarily figurative, his works feature crowds or their abstract representation as a recurring motif. Drawing from Indian miniatures and pop art, he infuses a contemporary perspective into his work, offering viewers an array of possibilities, ideas, and subjects to contemplate. His purposive depiction of crowds serves as a reflection on the urban culture we inhabit, prompting viewers to question the emotions and dynamics that surround us. 

Aditya Chadar lives and works in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India.
