Haku Shah



24.0 x 24.0 in. / 61.0 x 61.0 cm.


Oil on canvas

Few modern-day artists have championed tribal art with as much passion as Haku Shah. His quest was inspired by a shift from the aesthetic of classical Indian art towards modernism that stressed on a personal language in art. In this Untitled work, Shah draws on a typical scene that we see often in rural India—two female figures working in the fields with baskets placed firmly on their heads, supported by their hands. The painting is rendered in Shah’s unique style of creating figures that appear elongated.
