Decoding Nature Through Art

The world is a beautiful and balanced composition of humans and animals where currently an imbalance has been created between the two. Rohan Dahotre has translated his love for animals into illustrations in an attempt to create awareness and restore this balance.

An unhindered interest to watch animal documentaries and amazed by the behaviour of animals, Rohan names Nature as his biggest inspiration in life and accredits it for where he stands today in his professional career of being an illustrator, specifically illustrating animals.

An animal lover by nature, Rohan studies and observes animals in terms of their form, characteristics, behaviour, colour, patterns, texture and habitat. With an aim to make people aware about the existence of these creatures and the beauty that lies within them, he took to drawing animal portraits.

Inspired by tribal art in general and African doodles lately, Rohan began experimenting with doodles of tribal patterns on photographs of animals in the wild. An extremely positive response to his first doodled-Rhino on social media motivated him to the extent that he created an entire series based on tribal art doodle on animals.

Living for Animals!

Describing himself as a versatile artist, Rohan tries out different kinds of styles. He is of the opinion that using the tools of pen and ink help him in strengthening the foundations of his of artworks and keeping his basics in place.

Full of an undying love and an undiminished devotion towards the protection for animals, he loves working on projects involving nature and animal conservation. Rohan is presently working on a few personal illustrations on the endangered species while also illustrating for children's books.

Challenge Yourself, Go Beyond!

Not such a big fan of type art, he still took up the challenge of '36 days of type' only for his love towards animals and came up with a series called "Owlfabets", owls in alphabets, drawing owls, keeping the style clean and minimal and yet not losing the identity.

Rohan recommends the budding artists to carry a sketchbook everywhere they go as inspiration can be found in the most bizarre of the places and then comes the need to have a place to pour that thought onto.

The future is full of endless possibilities. Create your own.
