Statement
Born 1961 at Srinagar in Kashmir did his graduation in Commerce from the Islamia College of Science and Commerce there before studying for his Diploma in Fashion Design from the National Institute of Fashion Design in Delhi. Though Baba started his career as a fashion designer and had a successful few years working in the fashion industry, he switched his medium in response to a personal quest and his playing field over the last couple of decades has been mainly in the art domain. The impact of fashion and pop culture and his love for the world of Indian Cinema is evident in work with vintage film posters, oleographs and lithographs. Painting in mixed -media, creating collages and installations, his work is marked for its vibrant colors, decorative patterns, engaging designs, juxtaposed materials and different embellishments including flowers and other unusual three- dimensional objects, There is a freshness and originality, in creations that encompass diverse themes from Bollywood to religious icons and from popular matter to vintage oleographs. His Krsna and other Hindu deities are decorated with sequins, crystals and gold and silver dust while his series of paintings inspired by IPL cricket has his kiss imprints on the canvases! There is a match and mix of the whimsical and the jubilant, classical styles with a glitzy stylish approach and the spiritual with the irreverent. The richly textured work appears seductive and playful as it crosses boundaries and challenges assumptions to celebrate the power of the spirit and the kitsch. Winner of the Recherche Libre Scholarship for advanced research in the field of Art in Paris, Baba has travelled extensively and his work has been exhibited in significant shows at Delhi, Mumbai, Paris, London, New York, Cannes and Moscow amongst others. It has also been featured in many international publications such as Nice Matin, Vanity Fair, British Vogue, NewYork Magazine, India Today. The artist who has a home and a studio on the outskirts of Delhi is an itinerant traveler who works in different continents.
