BAIJU PARTHAN

Kerala, India, 1956. Lives and works in Mumbai.

Through one of his Western acquaintances, Baiju Parthan came across Sartre’s Age of Reason, a book that he describes as a major influence. Also affecting his work at the time was Goa’s ‘soft drug culture.’This, too, helped Parthan explore new ways

of experiencing the world. Parthan began to study the Indian mystical arts, exploring tantra, ritual arts and Indian mythology. Simultaneously, Western art continued to exert an influence. Parthan names Larry Rivers, Miró and the Cubist painters as

important models.
