  • About the Artist

Apurva Desai’s works reflect a realistic vision of India, and they are among the most advanced examples of contemporary Indian art. Apurva Desai was born in Vadodra (Baroda) in 1962 and took his diploma in painting from C.N. College, Ahmedabad, and M.A. in painting from M.S. University, Baroda in 1989. He represents a Gujarat that is very different from that of Narendra Modi or Shankarinh Vaghela or of caste heroes such as Bhatiji. He paints and communicates the industrial reality that is Gujarat and the rest of India today. He has over the past 15 years, done a series of paintings on the dying industrial scene of Ahmedabad, on the mines of Madhya Pradesh, on Calcutta (Kolkata), the city of rickshaw-pullers, trade unions and the red-flay, the ship-breaking yards of Along. In fact, he has lived for extended periods of time on these sites. He works in the open lie the impressionists. His reason for concentrating on the industrial environment is succinct. He says: “I always feel life is much larger than art. The revolutionary ideas of creation always rage from the basis of the transformation into living canvases.”

Thanks to his power graphically to describe what he sees, his responses to his visits all over the world are a joy to listen to, meriting the very matrix on which his intentions flow, the images are more like “pleasure and pain b\objectified.” But many of his works manage to exude an air of disquiet and disenchantment with the molten state of modern living, he compares an exhibition of the remains of pop art when he was in London on the Charles Wallace Fellowship. Apurva has long been known to relate his art to the relative brimming of experience and memory. There must be more to art than meets the eye.
