ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born in 1939 in Gujarat, Manu Parekh obtained a Diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Sir J.J. School. Mumbai School of Art, 1962. Parekh's early works explored the relationships between man and nature, as he believed it was an energetic bond that needed to be celebrated. The artist also notes that, since then, contradictions have formed the basis of his artistic practice, regardless of the theme or genre of his works.

 

Controversy has always intrigued Manu Parekh: the energy of organic form and the sexuality inherent in these forms are intangible elements in his works. His paintings cause viewers to become aware of the world around them through the emotion, pain, and anguish expressed in the themes of his paintings. His colors and shapes exude a volatile energy that can barely be contained within the confines of his canvas and become an extension of the artist's personality.

 

Bold colors and prominent lines are an integral part of Parekh's work and each one of them exudes the energy he tries to capture. Parekh admits to being greatly influenced by his surroundings. His stay in the city of Calcutta, for example, attracted him to Santiniketan and the ancient masters of Indian art, Ram Kinkar Baij and Rabindranath Tagore. Her appreciation of his work, more on a perceptual than a stylistic level, prompted her to delve deeper into the thoughts that inform his work.

 

Banaras as a city came to play an integral role in Parekh's work after his first visit there following the death of his father. This holy city of hope, of faith, of tourists, offered him a large number of contradictions in one place. Parekh also highlights his relationship with his wife Madhvi, a self-taught artist, and his admiration for Picasso as key influences on his works.

 

Parekh held his first solo exhibition of graphics and paintings in Ahmedabad in 1968 and has not looked back since. His most recent solo exhibitions include Banaras - Eternity Watches Time presented by Saffronart and Berkeley Square Gallery, London, at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai, in 2007, Banaras at Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi, in 2004, Portraits of Flower and Landscapes of River at Jehangir Art Gallery and Tao Art Gallery, Mumbai, in 2003, Ritual Oblations at Rabindra Bhavan, New Delhi, Sakshi Gallery, Bangalore, and Sakshi Gallery and Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai, in 1999, and Small Drawings at Sophia Duchesne Art Gallery. , Mumbai, in 1991. Parekh has also had solo exhibitions at BosePacia Modern in New York and ARKS Gallery in London.

 

Parekh received the President of India's Silver Plate and the Award from the Society of Fine Arts and Crafts of India, New Delhi, in 1972, the National Award from Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, in 1982, and the Padma Shree of the Government of India. in 1992.
