  • Himmat Shah
    Born in 1933 at Lothal in Gujarat. After initially training as a drawing teacher, he studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of M.S. University, Baroda, from 1956 to 1960. He was a National Cultural Scholar in 1956, and received a French Government scholarship to study etching at Atelier 17, Paris in 1967. His predilection for drawing was natural. Being an inexpensive, transformative and free form of expression, it appealed to him in his negotiations with form and space. If one looks at his early drawings closely, one discovers the skill behind the chaotic black lines. These works are never predictable, and deeply ironic in the manner in which they use a simple medium to interpret complex contemporary visual fields. His self-designed tools and innovative techniques give his preferred medium – terracotta – a contemporary edge. Shah uses a number of tools, brushes, instruments and hand tools to carve, shape and mould his works. He has designed and executed monumental murals in brick, cement and concrete.
