Also, large-scale installations, screenings, performances and live events will be present. Galleries will display a dialogue with historical paintings presented by modern artists. At the same time, they look to expand their Film programme which will cover the queering culture.
Artists that cause goosebumps
Another amazing thing about the Indian Art Fair, is the amount of creativity found in upcoming and established artists. In addition to its famous exhibitions full of colors and textures, there are some artists that simply blow our minds. Starting with the renowned ones like Jeff Koons to rising artists like Sudipta Das who amazed everyone. So we chose two artists and decided to tell you a bit more of their work.
Jae Yong Kim
Born in South Korea in 1987, Jae Yong Kim creates amazing sculptures. His pieces normally refer to human issues through simple shapes like snails or his dog Momo. On the other hand, he made a collaboration with jewelry designer Sally Sohn. He often creates with the idea of a missing and not stable home. This is what makes his pieces so exciting and full of emotions. If you find him as astonishing as we do check his web page to understand more of what happens in this artist’s mind.
Born in 1985 Sudipta Das is a modern and contemporary artist who experiments with materials. Her work has been featured in several exhibitions and online newspapers. In Mutual Art magazine they name some of them. In recent Indian Art fairs, she amazed presented portraits made of coffee. She creates textures by adding pieces of paper and layering them creating dimensions and life to her artworks. Also, her sculpture of miniature humans was really admired through the fair.
