S H Raza: Thirst for an Indian elixir

S H Raza: Thirst for an Indian elixir

New works by S H Raza, 92 this year, feature in a selling exhibition titled Pyaas (Hindu/Urdu: thirst) at London’s Grosvenor Vadehra gallery 2 – 14 June 2014. Syed Haider Raza, born 1922, has lived and worked in France since 1950. His formal education, including Nagpur School of Art, Nagpur (1939–43), Sir J J School of Art, Bombay (1943–47) and École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, encompassed both eastern and western influences, but his strong affinity with India continues to find expression in his new work, including...

Jamil Naqsh & Najmi Sura: An Epic Romance

Jamil Naqsh & Najmi Sura: An Epic Romance

The first thing to consider about Jamil Naqsh & Najmi Sura: An Epic Romance, the exhibition at London’s Albemarle Gallery (5-28 June 2014) is how long it has taken this joint show to materialise, writes SAJID RIZVI. Neither Naqsh nor Sura are spring chicken and while Naqsh has accumulated fame and fortune his lifetime muse Sura has practiced her art virtually in purdah. Previous appearances of her art have occurred more often in international auctions than in grand events celebrating only her work. This show almost reaches that...

Last of the master: Final paintings of M F Husain

Nine paintings by the late M F Husain (1915-2011), described as his final major works before his passing, are on public display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 28 May–27 July 2014, writes SAJID RIZVI.   It’s a poignant tour de force and a foretaste, interrupted, of what could or would have been a sumptuous feast of Maqbool Fida Husain’s creative expression had he not died in self-imposed exile in London. Husain generally is believed to have been hounded out of his native land by intolerant and unappreciative audiences...

African art collecting picks up

More African individuals and businesses are spending on or investing in art than a few years earlier, with the focus on contemporary art produced by artists on the African continent or in  locations elsewhere , anecdotal evidence and art market trends suggest. There’s also an emerging trend toward restitution of historical cultural materials now outside Africa. At Bonhams’ sale 21 May 2014, entitled Africa Now and billed by the auctioneer as a celebration of art from across the African continent, the works that drew most buyers...

Victor Ehikhamenor’s Contemporary Magic

Chronicles of The Enchanted World is the title of a selling exhibition of a selection of paintings and sculptural installations by Victor Ehikhamenor, on display 21 May -19 July 2014 at London’s Gallery of African Art, writes SAJID RIZVI.  Ehikhamenor’s reputation traverses disciplines. He’s an artist and photographer, raconteur and writer of short stories and, imminently (we hear), a novel.(1) There’s something naughty and noble about that ever expanding repertoire of this artist, born in Udomi-Uwessan, Edo State, Nigeria,...

Madagascar, but not as your kids know it

Thanks to the ongoing Dreamworks franchise (there may be a fourth animated sequel soon), Madagascar is firmly and mirthfully on the world map, its mind-boggling menagerie embedded deep into the consciousness of children who’ll soon be teenagers, given the series’ debut in 2005, and surely will be taking their toddler siblings along a well-beaten path, writes SAJID RIZVI. But there’s another aspect to the art of Madagascar that’s currently having its very timely and well-deserved exposure in London’s Gallery of...

London’s China Visual Festival

This year’s edition of the annual Chinese Visual Festival in London is in full swing, offering audiences opportunities to get up to speed with new talent and new trends in Chinese cinema, from the mainland to countries and regions contiguous in cultural or historical terms. Mainstream moviegoers, having been introduced to Chinese cinema through circuitous routes including Hollywood and Hong Kong, are only now beginning to catch up with a virtual explosion of growth in mainstream film-making. A general tendency to compare the growth in...

Paper in bloom: Zhuang Hong Yi’s make-believe world

Zhuang Hong Yi transports the viewer to three-dimensional floral tableaux vivants in an exhibition that needs to be seen up close to be appreciated for the artist’s exemplary skill and visual power, writes SAJID RIZVI. The selling show at Hua Gallery in London (19 March 2014 – 30 May 2014) also features Zhuang Hong Yi’s equally adept and exquisitely delicate manipulation of porcelain to produce works mounted on canvas that create the illusion of resplendent vast chunks of green jades impossibly hung on walls. In the event...

Malangatana: Homage to an African visionary

The Gallery of African Art, Cork Street’s eminent new venue showcasing contemporary and modern art from the continent, has produced a deeply evocative tribute to Valente Malangatana Ngwenya, better known simply as Malangatana, arguably one of the great creative spirits and gifted visual storytellers to emerge from Africa before his death in 2011, writes SAJID RIZVI. The painter/poet/philosopher, part-time guerrilla fighter and former prisoner of colonial Portugal (where he died at the age of 74), is recognised only in patches of African...
