Sushisurge's 'Aching' Captures the Essence of Urban Life Through Reductionism

Must Know Artist: Sushant Sharma aka Sushisurge

In the bustling metropolis of Mumbai, artist Sushant Sharma, known by his pseudonym 'Sushisurge,' has been making waves in the world of abstract art.

With a penchant for reductionism, Sushant embarks on a creative journey that challenges the very essence of his subjects. He constantly asks himself, "How much can I take away from a face for it to still look like one?"

His recent series, "Aching" exhibited in Mumbai and featured at Homegrown's event delves into the cramped lifestyle plaguing large cities. Using ink on canvas Sushant employs scale to depict larger-than-life figures trapped in a common fate. Tears stream down their faces as they strive to break free from the confines of the frame.

"Aching" is a compelling part of Sushant's larger body of work inviting viewers to empathize with the complexities of urban life. Through his reductionist lens he encapsulates the claustrophobia experienced in crowded trains, tiny homes and overflowing workplaces.

Sushant's art serves as a poignant reminder of the shared struggles that bind city dwellers together, urging us all to pause and reflect on the human experience in the modern urban jungle.
