"I am trying to paint in a kind of action painting way, as an action is ‘now’ and not a movement of thought. Movement of thought is rather an action taken after the thought is realized. By avoiding movement of thought I am trying to look at the possibility of mutation to happen in the moment of 'now’. The focus is at the intersection of two triangles, just like the intersection between the past and the future."

Raju Sutar

A chance meeting with an art school teacher who saw Raju’s paintings on ply boards at his father’s carpentry unit, had the teacher invite him to the school where he was fascinated by art and the pursuit of learning art. Yet, much before he enrolled in a G. D. Art (Drawing and Painting), Abhinav Kala Mahavidyala, Pune, in 1987, he worked on posters, screen-printed cards, decorations of Ganesh pandals, and 3-D drawings for his father. At art school,  even as he learnt formal drawing and painting, Raju spent hours in the library studying artworks and reading on art history, great masters and modernists. He was particularly inspired by the spontaneous work, in an abstract expressionist style, of American artist Jackson Pollock. And keen to develop his expression, he travelled to Mumbai to meet with artists and had enriching interactions with them specially M.F. Husain, Prabhakar Barwe and Akbar Padamsee.
