Birds Eye is an artistic tribute to the vibrant, cultural and colourful places Santosh has been fortunate to call home or visit including our very-own Box Hill and Melbourne. While the aerial perspective of a location and its feathered residents is ubiquitous across his oil collages, it’s his distinct juxtaposition of the natural and man-made icons that allows viewers to reminisce cherished travel memories.
Santosh’s unique style and approach to art incorporates learnings from his nonconventional background and eclectic interests. While his engineering and consulting career brings elements of design, detail, and logic, his diverse upbringing, cultural inquisitiveness, and love to paint allows his emotional side to be passionately creative on the canvas. We invite you to come and enjoy a visual celebration of our city and its icons together with some of the artist’s journeys across India, Bali and NZ among other places.
