Satish Gujral: An Artography traces the aesthetic and personal journey of a pioneer of modern Indian art, over the last five decades. A true Renaissance artist, Satish Gujral defies categorization. Painter, sculptor, muralist, architect, interior designer and more, he has ventured beyond the conventional boundaries of individual art forms. A master of medium, he has painted in oil and acrylic, sculpted using wood, bronze and granite, made paper collages and ceramic murals, designed buildings in brick and stone, and left his mark in metal and glass, creating works that telescope the past with contemporary history, and represent a continuum between distinct art forms. A twenty-first century Da Vinci, Satish Gujral is forever in quest of a new theme. His early experiences with deafness, the horrors of Partition, nationalistic politics, the idealization of his elder brother, Inder Gujral, and his training in art, especially under Mexican muralist David Alfaro Sequeiros, have manifestly enriched and contributed to his evolution as an artist. While hope and exuberance remain common denominators of his art, he has never fought shy of expressing his sense of outrage at human degradation. Printed Pages: 276.
