DESCRIPTION

Art Musings opens their next exhibition 'Graceful Silence' featuring Bengal-based artist Lalu Prasad Shaw showcasing 40 works in tempera. This is Lalu Prasad Shaw’s second solo show in Mumbai with Art Musings after 'Sepia' Notes in 2007. The artist draws inspiration from nature and the milieu surrounding the great Bengali middle class, often depicting scenes from his own life onto his canvas. His works are highly stylized portraits of Bengali women laying emphasis on his subject’s physical characteristics. Capturing the expressions of his subjects perfectly with the greatest economy of line and colour, each of Shaw’s paintings has an intimate feel to it. An immensely gifted artist and print maker, Shaw's work is notable for its smooth synthesis of disparate stylistic elements. Influenced by the pre-independence Company School of Art, the traditional Kalighat Pat and the Ajanta cave paintings, Shaw’s works, mainly executed in gouache or tempera, have a very still, well-composed and smooth exterior. His style is unique and modern in its adaptation of academic and traditional Indian formats.
