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 Exhibition, 2019. View installation shots of the show by clicking here.
