Hinge is residing in Mumbai for two decades. Metaphorically Mumbai is a charmer. Its pace, race
and maze of life is its mute biography; a rich live literature that is embraced and espoused by
artist in his paintings. It has such a rich heritage that artist get swayed in its environment and
his innate reflexes gush in form of paintings.
This series of abstract paintings ‘Living Lines’ is an extension and elaboration of Ashok Hinge’s
earlier series. It is a thoughtful progress in the earlier developed concept of people around him.
The concept is artist’s broadened experience of the world around him. It is a meticulous
observation that has now intensified, with understanding and knowing the core nature,
behavior, body language and approach of all types of people in the society.
