Description

Culled from the author’s 25 years as a cultural journalist, these voices-from painting, sculpture, design, photography and cartooning-seek to demystify the creative persona by emphasizing the human dimension. These free-ranging interviews, each a vignette of is time, capture the diversity of the Indian visual context without representing any particular movement or school of thought.

Between these covers, art comes to life in vivid shades through its articulate creators. Meet R K Laxman as a painter of crows. Discover M F Husain in focus as a photographer. Share K K Hebbar’s outspoken views in his last interview. Steep yourself in the lyricism of Nilima Sheikh’s paintings. And debate feminist viewpoints with Rekha Rodwittiya. Through these interviews and many more that have weathered the test of time, you’ll find yourself in the thick of the pulsing Indian art scene today.
