Beauty in the details: A watercolour painting by Tushar Manohar Shetty, of one part of the CSMT building in Mumbai, to highlight its Gothic architecture

Architect, professor and artist Tushar Manohar Shetty from Dahisar, Mumbai, is known for his detailed watercolour works of old Bombay. He has dabbled in graphite and pencil sketches, then painting and later pursued architecture as it blends technology and art. He’s had two art exhibitions in this medium. One in 2017 on the coastlines of India, followed by the moods of rains in a show titled, Tushar (rain showers). After a long break, Shetty has taken to painting again, and feels his passion slowly turning into his profession. Here, he talks to Kavita Ezekiel Mendonca, who admires his art, about his process and painterly language.
