New perspectives


J.B.Hubli is one artist from Karnataka who has defined his own canvas – except that the workspace here is not canvas, but veneer on wood. He has the rare ability to recognize shapes and artforms in pieces of wood that are normally discarded or recycled by saw mills.

Jayant’s favourite hunting ground is a saw mill in Mysore, where machines slice large tree trunks to manufacture plywood. In the initial part of the production run, interesting bits of wood fly off the cutting machines. These pieces are hand-picked to “assemble” a picture – bit by bit, like a jigsaw puzzle.

When you look at his work, you are truly amazed at his mastery over form, in an interplay of images that seem to spring out of nature’s visual tapestry. Jayant has showcased his works of art in most major cities and is currently planning to share his unique perspectives with art lovers in Delhi. This talented young artist is from the Mysore College of Art (CAVA) and also has some very inspiring work in oils, water-colours, charcoal and acrylic.

You can view more of his work on his website. For samples of re-sized digital images of his work, please mail him at :
