Lot Details

Known for his celebratory figurative representations of both the mundane everyday and the divine, this screenprint entitled "Messenger" playfully rejects the academic style of figuration in exchange for a more whimsical and free style of figuration that is iconic of post-Modern artist Amit Ambalal (India, b. 1943) . "Messenger" is from an edition of 45 is in mint condition, unframed, and comes with a certificate of authenticity from The Publisher.

With his carefully conceived figurations executed in loose lines and strong colors, Contemporary Indian artist Amit Ambalal creates paintings and drawings obviously rooted in traditional manners, but with a satirical twist. He maintains a keen interest in the Nathdwara School of painting, a blend of all the schools of Rajasthan which emerged with a uniquely distinctive style of its own. In his work, Amabalal combines his art historical passion of devotional religious traditions with a sense of irreverent humor, subtly teasing out the irrational and mundane from comical imagery of the everyday or divine. The artist has exhibited at numerous locations the world over including the National Gallery of Modern Art (Mumbai, India), Bodhi Art (Singapore), Gallery F.I.A. (Amsterdam, Netherlands), and Gallery Espace (New Delhi, India), among others.
