7th March – 25th April, 2015 at Akar Prakar, Kolkata
After his return to India, his home country after spending 60 years in France, the master painter Raza has been living in Delhi and painting. The fact that he would be turning 93 years of age does not in any way diminish or slow down his zest both for living and painting. He lives, now as even before, to paint. His vast repertoire of creative energy, visual passion and spiritual yearnings remains rich and alive. His imagination dares to explore new visual ideas creating a language which is fresh and yet resonates with intense memories.
‘Aarambh’ is a selection of his new works done in 2014-15 and yet again confirms his masterly presence on the contemporary art scene. An art luminous with passion and vision- skilful and daring in its imagination.
