Pulkit’s practice is in expression through thick layers, texture and viscous paint. He imbued this style from informed walls one sees around in public spaces. These walls are vandalized and painted upon and eventually succumbed to erosion. The over time layers upon layers of paint that are added are all part wall’s rich history. Through all his work he attempts to evoke a sense of nostalgia, a longing for a life that once was.
