Works by Manjit Bawa

Manjit Bawa

Manjit Bawa (1941–2008) was a painter born in Dhuri, Punjab. Encouraged by his older brothers to pursue art, he attended the College of Art, New Delhi in 1958. He studied under Abani Sen, who was very influential on the artist’s distinct style, and encouraged him to embrace figurativism during a time when abstraction was dominant. Bawa moved to Britain in 1964, where he continued his artisitc practices, and worked as a silkscreen painter. Upon his return to India in 1971, he drew inspiration from Indian mythology and Sufi philosophy. Sticking to his customary palette of traditional Indian colors, such as red, pink, and violet, Bawa created unique and vibrantly colored paintings, as well as sketches and drawings.
