Akbar Padamsee

Akbar Padamsee was born in 1928 in Mumbai. He graduated in 1940 from Sir J J School of Art Mumbai. Padamsee left for Paris in !951 and lived and worked there until his return in 1967. He was associated with the Progressive Artist Group. Historically, this is considered to be one of the most influential groups of modern artists to emerge in early post-independent India. In 1952 he was awarded a prize by Andre Breton, known as the pope of surrealism, on behalf of the Journale d’art. His very first solo show was in Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai in 1954, where these early works were shown. In 2010 he was honored the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India. Akbar Padamsee is considered a Master Artist who paints abstracts – Metascapes – mirror images and figurative with equal ease. Although he is best known as a painter, Padamsee has experimented with film-making, sculpture, and writing as an art critic as well.
