Artist Aditya Chawla

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Aditya (alias: Bolt Minor) is a 2D Artist and Illustrator, working with both physical and digital media. His Pop-Surrealistic works are displayed in galleries and NFT Marketplaces across the globe.

Aditya translates societal observations, travel experiences and unprocessed emotions on canvas in his signature style, 2Dealism. Bright and vibrant at first glance, the paintings oft-times depict a dystopian world in a utopian light.


The life of the work is in the balance of shape and line with colour, texture, and atmosphere - often demanding a nostalgic response from the viewer. The bold lines give the painting more strength and powerful expression. The artwork is usually symbolic, with subtle cryptic elements that veil the real story behind.

Aditya is an engineering graduate from BITS Pilani, practicing art while traveling across India. He is also one of the very few colourblind artists in the world.
