Profile :: Ankit Patel
(b. 1957)

His sculptures reflect many cross-currents, a style that is dynamic creating a fluid and curvaceous movement from solid matter. His forms create a rhythm suggesting the elasticity of the human body where flesh is breathing. His kinetic creations which exude form in every movement can only be revealed by his skill and presentation.

Three decades of sculpting motion by just lifting moments as they happen and casting them in his marvelous works.
