Lot description
"Untitled no. 82" (2011) is a stunning large-scale painting that encapsulates the color, patterns, sights and sounds of native of traditional as well as modern-day India by rising-star, internally acclaimed emerging Indian Contemporary artist Sohan Jakhar (India, b. 1978). The representational bustle of a roadside bazaar at the center of the canvas is repeated in the elaborate and brilliantly colored abstract patterns that fill the rest of the canvas, giving the false but exciting impression that this is a collage work. As is stylistic of Jakhar, this scene's visual complexity reflects on the technological evolution of the contemporary culture and society, colliding with the traditional themes and subjects that are impacted by the growing consumerism of the present day. This painting measures 48 x 48 inches and is in perfect condition.

Sohan Jakhar was born in Sikar, India and received his BFA in 1999 and MFA in 2006 from Rajasthan School of Art, Jaipur. He has received several awards like the Kala mela award from R.L.K.A., Jaipur; Rajasthan Lalit Kala Akademi; and the Captain Durga prasad Choudhary Memorial award, among others. Jakhar has had several solo exhibitions in Duba and Jaipur, and group exhibitions in Singapore, Mumbai and New Delhi, and is included in private collections in the U.S., U.K., The Netherlands, Canada, and throughout India. The artists currently works in Jaipur and Mumbai, India.
