About Haku Shah - Limited Edition Serigraphs
A renowned figurative painter of the Baroda School, Haku Shah was driven by the principle that “The basics of rural/tribal art and craft need to be shared by people sensitive to it.” His art pulsates with the essence of India’s folk and tribal art forms. His figures bear the alluring simplicity that we see in many indigenous art forms – highly stylised motifs, geometric patterns, and scenes from rustic life.
The silkscreen prints in this collection brim with colours, forms and shapes one would associate with India. Desaturated shades of blue, green, white, red and brown evoke the sights and textures of village life. The pared down details preserve the integrity of folk and tribal practices, while effectively representing their way of life.
