The artist may not be Indian by birth, but having lived in India for nearly twelve years this American artist and collector has become very much a part of the Indian art scene. Collaborating with various Indian artists in his adopted home of Udaipur, Rajasthan, Waswo is most often associated with autobiographical miniatures he makes in collaboration with the traditional painter R. Vijay, and also hand-coloured studio photographs he produces with the third generation photo colourist Rajesh Soni. This year's India Art Fair finds Waswo's hand-coloured photographs represented by Mumbai's Sakshi Gallery, while New Delhi's Gallery Espace premieres a large suite of miniatures the artist has made in collaboration with R. Vijay.
