Lot description
Born in Varanasi, India in 1981, emerging Contemporary Indian artist Phaneendra Nath Chaturvedi is Highly acclaimed with works depicting futuristic figures who have transformed into a semi-robotic beings. In this piece “The Passion of Bapu”, Chaturvedi reveals a skeletal Bapu metamorphosing blood and flesh into metallic strips revealing the grotesque and dispassionate aspects of the human being. Civilization of the of the past and future is represented by the faint fading handwriting against the barcode postmark. The religious overtones amidst the barbed wire thorns denote the brutal, cold, newly incarnated man, in an alternative exotic fantasy world. Chaturvedi’s paintings comment on superficial beauty, insincerity, and corruption that has found its way into every aspect of society’s interactions.

Phaneendra Nath Chaturvedi received his BFA and MFA in painting from the College of Arts and Crafts at the University of Lucknow’s Faculty of Fine Arts, and has received two “All India Awards” as well being a selected representative of India in the 2006 exhibition in Seoul Arts Center.
