For Diamond World, it’s a pleasure to present a series of paintings by Yogendra Sethi, a dynamic and vibrant painter of the Indore School of Arts, India. He is the designer behind the famed jewellery brand ‘YS18’. The brawny foothold of YS18, drawn from its roots, goes back in 1976 when Yogendra translated the colours of nature in gemstones. A painter and art connoisseur himself, Yogendra pioneered the concept of antiquity in modern times, with the contemporary brand YS18. He endeavoured to embellish his jewellery with his outdoor landscapes portraying mountains, cliffs and valleys.
Yogendra Sethi belonging to a well reputed business family of Indore, nestled in the fertile lands of Malwas in Central India, had the making of an impressionist in his early days. Flair for Art was handed over in legacy. Playing a connoisseur was more of a tradition than a virtue. His academic career is a unique amalgam of arts and commerce. His endeavors in field of Fine Arts earned him a degree of MFA from the Indore School of Fine Arts, whose portals have seen the like of M.F.Hussain. Keen to add a shade of contemporary west to his occidental self, Yogendra took another leap by graduating as an MBA from Berkeley, California, in 1975.
Yogendra Sethi in his early years, painted the rustic countryside of India. Later he was overwhelmed with the unsurpassed beauty of Berkeley Hills, and captured the natural wonders of California in series of many outdoor landscapes in transparent watercolors. Viewers were astounded by the physical impression of his innate vision, during his one-man show of Acrylic paintings in 1997 at Vanden Berge Gallery, San Francisco USA. Taj Art Gallery, Bombay, Somar Art Gallery in San Francisco, are some of the other melting pots of art where he has contributed with his water colour Landscape and Impressionistic contemporary Acrylic canvas. His paintings, a tyro’s dream, decors the walls of many collectors internationally.
