Painter /Art director Sunil Pawar aka SUNSLINGSHOT embraced the digital world early on in his career. As technology has progressed, so has its place in his day to day studio technique and output.
Switching between analogue/tablet and laptop to create finished canvases, the paintings are then taken to a whole new dimension, by using movement and music (an established DJ, he also integrates his own music productions into his work using portable tools such as the teenage engineering OP-1)
Paintings are now digital animations, which are projected on walls, screens and used as viral films for social media.
Examples include 'GODS ON EARTH' and 'PLAY' 2008 where sequential photos were taken on a phone making the artwork 'come to life' then turned into an animation. 'PLAY was projected over ten cities in Germany.
In addition to his studio and music output, Sunil is a visiting lecturer, where he gives talks about his studio discipline and production.
He was born and bred in London town and is rather partial to a plate of pie and mash.
