Diwan Manna



Born in 1970 in Karnataka, Iranna completed his BFA in ’92 from the College of Visual Arts, Gulbarga, and earned his MFA degree from Delhi College of Art in 1994.

At the very outset, Iranna’s career as a painter has been speckled with achievements. In ’93, he was chosen by M.F. Husain and Ram Kumar as the winner of the “In Search of Talent” award at Vadehra Gallery, New Delhi. In ’97 he received the 40th National Academy Award from Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, as well as the All India Fine Arts and Crafts (AIFACS) Award. In ’99 he was the recipient of the Charles Wallace Scholarship that allowed him to spend a year at a residency at the prestigious Wimbledon School of Art in London.

Iranna has had several solo exhibitions at The Guild, Mumbai and Gallery Espace, New Delhi. He is represented in the United States by the New York-based Aicon Gallery. His work has been featured in global group art shows, most notably at the San Jose Museum of Art in California, USA (2010), and at the Signature Art Prize show at the Singapore Museum (2009). His artworks are part of museum collections   worldwide, including the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, New Delhi, Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, Bharat Bhawan, Bhopal, Singapore Art Museum, Singapore, and SAM Museum, USA, and the private collection of Chester and David Hurwitz.

Tempered Branches was Iranna’s most recent solo show held this year at AICON Gallery, New York, comprising several important recent series of paintings, along with a monumental wall drawing and installation piece. The exhibition demanded a critique of our popular conception of growth and development, both in nature and human thought. The work continues to build upon Iranna’s career-spanning investigation into how social frameworks and religious dogmas, traditionally viewed as net-cultural positives, either directly or indirectly serve to suppress free thought and organic growth, often with complex and disastrous consequences.

Three other more recent landmark solos for him were Limning Heterotopias at Gallery Espace in 2012 and Ribbed Routes at The Guild Art Gallery in Mumbai. Both shows introduced Iranna’s reinterpretation of the symbolic figure of the monk and served as treatises on mortality and spirituality, while his 2008 solo at The Stainless Gallery, New Delhi and AICON Gallery, London and New York, titled Birth of Blindness proposed an alternative reading of the ongoing crisis of mindless conformity. 

According to art critic Ranjit Hoskote, “In a period that has registered the ascendancy of critical artistic strategies that unmask and dismantle, G.R. Iranna stands apart by espousing an art of affirmation, of measured additive procedures and philosophic reflections.”

Manu Parekh

Born 1939 at Ahmedabad, Manu Parekh studied drawing and painting from Sir JJ School of Art, Bombay. His career has spanned varied experiences ranging from being a painter to acting and designing. A stint as Art Designer     at the Weavers' Service Center, Bombay and then as Design Consultant for the Handicraft and Handloom Export Corporation of India, took him on extensive travels throughout India besides Europe, USSR and elsewhere, before his turning to full time painting. Manu Parekh's deft handling of his imagery, texture, palette and the variety of subjects that encompass his creative outpouring are manifest in his amazing Benaras series and still life works. The energy of the organic form and the inherent sexuality within the forms are intangible elements in this prolific artist's paintings that provoke viewers to take note of the world around with its volatile energy and the attendant emotions of anguish or joy. In his skillful brush strokes the ghats, the river, the boats, the temples and the surroundings capture the colour, culture and mood of the city and its people. Remarkable for its play with light and shade, echoing the changing       colours and moods of the flowers are his works in still life series that present a picture perfect imagery. Recipient of the Padma Shree, National Award of the LKA, Doctor of Literature, Rabindra Bharti University and the President's Silver Plaque among other honours, Manu Parekh has been associated with various Indian art institutions and international projects. He has had several solo and group exhibitions including those held at the NGMA Delhi, Smithsonian in USA, Art Alive, Delhi, Vadehra Art Gallery, Delhi, and 45 feet long Mural at Mumbai Airport besides many other solo and group shows. Two books have recently been brought out on this artist who has also been the subject of a film. His work is held in many public and private collections in India and abroad. Manu lives and works in Delhi.

Madhavi Parekh

Born in Sanjaya, a village in Gujarat, Madhvi Parekh reflects her rural influences in her stylized folk art.

Married to Manu Parekh, an artist from J.J.School of Art, Madhvi gained much of her exposure to art and inspiration for her paintings, from him. She explored the possibility of depicting her childhood memories through her paintings, where images of fantasy and early days are woven into her entire work, which lend it a surreal, dreamlike quality.

Her subjects have a freshness and spontaneity to them. Although her themes always revolve around images that affect her; her compositions are flexible, and all her paintings have a strong sense of design. 

There is an element of emancipation in the majority of Madhvi's works, where man is depicted free from the tyranny of mechanical time.

Madhvi's work has its inspiration in rural India, while her style is contemporary; influenced by artists such as Paul Klee and Clemente.

She has been exhibiting her work all over the world since 1972 and has close to a hundred solo and group shows to her credit including “Last Supper”, Kolkatta 2011, India Habitat Centre, N. Delhi, 2013 and two sculptures, “Udan Khatolla” at Mumbai Airport 2013.
