Anirudh Sood is a London artist who was born in Punjab, India. He is fascinated by the body and painting models from real-life – observing the tension between the figure and character, the skeletal structure and the fleshy exterior. As a trained architect, patterns bring a spatial and architectural dimension to his art. A collage of surfaces - where the base is textured and patterned - restricts the marks to regions of light. This mapping of light on top of the pattern informs and draws attention to the contours of the body.
He also has an interest in still life and the arrangement of Things. Mundane, domestic, everyday objects can be charged with latent energy, which he loves to explore and understand through drawing and painting.
