Full Description

With his Indian vision and French sens de la plastique coalescing to create a unique modernism, S. H. Raza has been a master of colors, concepts and creativity. From his early expressionist works to the mesmerizing abstraction of his later years, Raza’s artistic evolution is a testimony to his relentless pursuit of truth through color and form.

As an artist, Raza moved through many dualities, namely home and exile, color and concept, imagination and thought, modernity and memory, creativity and invention, locale and universality, passion and meditation, anxiety and silence, time and eternity. His journey is a testament to the power of artistic vision and cultural amalgamation.

Raza: The Other Modern celebrates the artist’s outstanding body of work and invites the viewer to explore the depth of his artistic genius. One of the most significant exhibitions of Raza’s work to be held in Dubai, it is a quest through the evolving phases of Raza’s life and artistic endeavors.
