Mostly known for his abstract paintings, artist Bose Krishnamachari has just opened his first solo, UK exhibition, titled Ghost. The exhibition, which is hosted by Aicon Gallery in London, features work that explores what is called the ‘Average Mumbaiker,’ a general psyche of anxiety in the society that is prompted by the idea of acceptance. The show manifests through five large-scale portraits and the installation Ghost which includes 108 used tiffins which frame video loops of interviews featuring several Mumbai residents.
Bose lives and works as both an artist and curator in Mumbai, actively supporting exhibitions and emerging artists throughout India. The artist received his BFA from Sir J.J. School of Art in Mumbai, and an MFA from Goldsmiths College in London. He will also be the Guest of Honor during Arco’09, Madrid, curating the India Pavilion.
