Born in 1960, Buwa Shete is an artist with a penchant for the feminine form. The female protagonist is the focus of most of his canvases. His contemporary modernist figures are done in rough strong brush strokes. Buwa is unafraid of experimenting with proportion and flirts outrageously with color. Strong shades of red and blue are often seen in his work.
Buwa completed his degree in Applied Arts at Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya, Pune in 1984 and later worked with multiple ad agencies as a creative director and illustrator. He has won the national award as well as an award from London Advertising in 1997.
Buwa has participated in several solo and group shows and his paintings are a part of several collections in India and abroad.
