Black Brown & The Blue
Black Brown & the Blue offers a tantalizing glimpse into the world of renowned contemporary Indian artist, Shuvaprasanna. Few artists of his generation can claim to have a creative oeuvre as large and diverse as his. Over the past four decades, he has created numerous paintings, lithographs, graphics, sculptures, and a wide variety of mixed ...media art on themes that range from the despondency of the urban chaos, surreal crows and cats, to the delightful play of the deities, as well as realistic portraiture and sensuous renderings of still life. These have not only adorned galleries and public and private spaces, but also book covers, posters, articles, magazines, and much else.
With full page colour reproductions of the art works along with a selection of personal photographs and other rare memorabilia supporting the text, the book takes the reader through the many turns and twists in the story of the man, his art and the times.
Their well-researched insights into Shuvaprasanna s art make Black Brown & the Blue a must-read for any connoisseur, collector and student of contemporary Indian art.
