Mahendra Singh Solanki born in 1969 at Dewas. Nature enchanted Mahendra not only with its exotic myriad colors but also with the dried and withered leaves and flowers which had lost all their freshness and all their beauty and this resulted into the creation of nature collage. It proves that everybody can perceive the beauty visible to eyes but only an artist goes beyond that and that vision is exactly what makes him an artist, a creator. His creative intellect/instinct feeds on withered flowers and leaves and that is what he invokes his Muse with. People step on dried leaves, flowers and hay failing to see the beauty, hidden or otherwise, which finds expression in Mahendra's nature collage.He worships nature in all its form. Having had a solo exhibition `Vision' at Devlalikar Kala Vithika, Indore and having participated in group shows at M.P. Kala Parishad and Vakankar Smriti State Exhibition.


His collage are full of natural beauty and purely natural are they. No artificial colors are used and yet all their dull and muted colors have a splendor that defies the vivid brightness of other mediums.The collage may not dazzle with its extra brilliance or sharp colors but is sure does have a soothing effect, it delights. In dismal times like ours, Mahendra's nature collage is an earnest attempt to reestablish man's relationship with nature. He is having his collections at Late Pt. Kumar Gandharva, Dewas, Tata Holset Ltd., Dewas, D. Concept Advertising, Bombay, Private Collection, Bombay, Banglore, Pune, Indore, U.S.A. Germany.
