Radhey Patel articulates, "There is never a moment's doubt in my mind that this is what I want to do. It’s a very creative process, getting to express my thoughts and imagination and making the impossible possible. The first thing that pops up in my mind when I wake up is new ideas for art. I have always had a drive to experiment and make unique things with my hands. Art helps me process my thoughts and feelings and interpret them. Art is one of my languages for expression. Making and seeing art excites my brain and makes my day complete.”
Junior Picasso Radhey dedicated one of his paintings titled 'Transform: Making of a Mahatma' to father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi, in which he attempted to show case how Gandhi, an attorney in South Africa transformed into a Mahatma during the fight for independence.
The theme was to create a piece of artwork, based around the word transform - the word suggests something is changing or shifting, turning from one thing into another. I was inspired by the quote of “You gave us Gandhi, we gave you back the Mahatma - Nelson Mandela”.
Picasso and Van Gogh are his all time favorites. And he extensively believes in the theory of Picasso which says that every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.
Radhey’s next challenge is to host an online exhibition of all his work in support of BBC Children in Need and contribute to the wellbeing of other children and help make a difference.
In the words of William Blake Radhey Patel says, “Without unceasing practice nothing can be done, Practice is Art and if you leave off you are lost.”
