About the Artist
Mohan Naik hails from a farming family in South Goa. He uses the canvas to bring his childhood memories to life. The renowned artist captures the moments of an era gone by, primarily through the use of oils and acrylics. Mohan chose to pursue traditional Indian craftsmanship after graduating from the Goa College of Art, unlike his peers who preferred a Westernized art form. Forest glades and pastoral scenes in pastel shades and earthy tones are the hallmarks of Mohan’s work. Today, his son, Mohit Naik, carries forward his legacy with his own collection of vivid artworks and sketches.
