Raqib Shaw (born 1974) is an Indian-born, London-based artist who shot to fame in the international art world at the age of 33 . He is known for his opulent and intricately detailed paintings of imagined paradises, inlaid with vibrantly coloured jewels and enamel. His paintings and sculptures evoke the work of Old Masters such as Holbein and Bosch, whilst drawing on multifarious sources, from mythology and religion to poetry, literature, art history, textiles and decorative arts from both eastern and western traditions, all infused with the artist's imagination.

dbo:abstract
  • Raqib Shaw (* 1974 in Kalkutta, Indien) ist ein indischer Maler. Shaw wurde in Kalkutta geboren, verlebte seine Jugendjahre in Kaschmir. Er studierte Kunst in London am Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design seit 1998 und schloss mit dem B.A. und 2002 mit einem M.A. ab. Seine zum Teil großformatigen Gemälde stellen mit viel Glanz und Schimmer exotische Phantasien dar. Bezüge zur Realität sind nicht erkennbar, eine moralische Botschaft hat der Künstler laut eigenen Aussagen nicht. Seit 2004 werden Shaws Gemälde in den USA und in London ausgestellt, sowie zum Beispiel in Auktionen versteigert. (de)
