Manu Parekh: Recent Paintings

Manu Parekh (Author)

Manu Parekh, one of India most inventive painters, believes that a good artist draws inspiration from everything around him. Parekh’s study of other people’s art inspires his own work and reaffirms his belief that everything and everyone is connected. This book showcases 42 new works painted over a single year by a master creating at the height of his prowess. The paintings evince the variety of influences that have informed Parekh’s oeuvre through the years: nature, worship and ritual, theatre and film, and the work of other seminal artists as well as his own previous works. Parekh returns to beloved places, themes, artists and creations, infusing each of the paintings with new energy and depth. As Jeet Thayil says in the introduction, ‘Some artists repeat the success of their mature years ad infinitum…. Then there are those who deepen and mix up the work, charging it anew…. Manu is among the select latter group.
