Ganesh specializes in city scapes in Oil colors and prefers large canvases. His keen observations on how the city has changed is represented in the art work he is currently doing on the wall of the Shinde School, Taljai Pune. Along with the stark comparison of heritage Pune and contemporary Pune, the wall will highlight few prominent structures e.g. Mandai, University, Lal baug etc. which has also witnessed these changes through time. Through this artwork, he wants to explore the deeply ingrained images, feelings and thoughts that everyone feels with the old and the ever changing architecture around them.
