Bronzed From Paint to Patina

Jogen Chowdhury (Author) Ram Kumar (Author) Krishen Khanna (Author) Thota Vaikuntam (Author)

Bronzed brings together the journey of four eminent storytellers—Jogen Chowdhury, Ram Kumar, Krishen Khanna and Thota Vaikuntam—whose imagery has set ablaze the hearts of art lovers for decades. Their very recognizable style and figuration is the foundation behind this project of transforming ‘paint to patina’. The artists collaborated with skilled artisans to recreate their iconic figures from every angle, thereby looking at their paintings afresh and exploring aspects they had not attended to previously. The twenty-six bronze sculptures in the book—each of which is an edition of nine—allowed the artists to extend themselves beyond the two-dimensional constraints of their most distinguished works, and through a stroke of reimagining, brought their iconic artworks to new and three-dimensional life.

About the author

Krishen Khanna

Krishen Khanna, b. 1925, is one of India's most reputed artists. He worked as a banker from 1948 to 1961 before deciding it was far better to follow his destiny as an artist than to stay in a secure job. A member of the Progressive Artists Group, Bombay, he has held more than forty one-man exhibitions in India and abroad, and participated in all the important Triennales and Biennales in the world - at Sao Paulo, Venice, New Delhi, Tokyo and elsewhere. His work is represented in several major museums including the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi. A recipient of the Padma Shri, he divides his time between Delhi and Shimla.
