Raqib Shaw is one of the most extraordinary and sought-after artists working anywhere in the world today. Born in Calcutta, raised in Kashmir, and studied in London, where he now lives. He takes inspiration from both Eastern and Western imagery, fusing them together through his own highly personal lens.
Shaw says these fantastical worlds are laden with satire and irony, and can be read "as a commentary on my own experience of living in this society, and of being alive."
