Jai Zharotia’s Luqman

Jai Zharotia has created 30 acrylic works inspired by Luqman Ali, a fictional character penned by the well-known Hindi poet and novelist Soumitra Mohan. Jai’s wild and exuberant colors spill out beyond the page, objects are suspended in a world that appears to be without gravity, as protagonist Luqman Ali sprints, cartwheels and somersaults his way, like a kind of acrobat/jester through a harsh political landscape, dotted here and there with erotic desires.

Luqman was launched at Art Heritage during The Art Book Exhibiton, 2019. View installation shots of the show here.
