Statement

Udit Kulshrestha (b. Rajkot, 1977)

Born in Rajkot in 1977, Udit Kulshrestha spent his childhood travelling the length and breadth of the country, as an Army officer's son. As a youth, he ventured into the world of marketing where he studied the domains of the Internet, Media, and Paints & Durables for 7 years. However, with a parental lineage in performing and visual arts, (his grandfather having taught the Great Ghazal Maestro Jagjit Singh & his maternal grandmother being an Oscar winner and a Filmfare Lifetime Achievement award recipient for costumes for her work in the acclaimed Richard Attenborough's Gandhi), it was only a matter of time till he discovered his true calling as a visual artist and a photographer. Thus began a journey of self realisation and vivid creative expression.

Encouragement came in the form of commissioned projects for UNESADE, Spain, on issues of Education, Poverty, Sustainability, Street Children and other ‘Blind Spots' of the society, during his initial learning period. Having published some of his editorial works across the US (Smithsonian - 2008), RCE Barcelona E&S, Spain (2007-2009), Pearson University, Singapore (2008) and Times of India & Traffic Life Magazine, India (2007 & 2008), his profession keeps him busy creating visual delights for the Advertising, Editorial and Corporate clientele in the domains of people, lifestyle, still life and sports. His work has been recognised by the Smithsonian (USA) in '08. His advertising work has been awarded the Rising Tide Award, apart from being nominated for prestigious Industry Awards like Cannes Lions Advertising awards, Clio Awards and One Show Awards in 2009.

A self taught inquisitive photographer and a traveller - more a voyager of the visual senses - he explores the media of motion imagery, literature & creative writing, philosophy, design and music to hone his pictorial perspectives. He is currently exploring the vistas of People, Street & Life, Abstracts and Still Life.
