Raqib Shaw's Painting of Lost Paradise

artist

Raqib Shaw (born 1974) is an Indian-born, London-based artist who shot to fame in the international art world at the age of 33 . He is known for his opulent and intricately detailed paintings of imagined paradises, inlaid with vibrantly coloured jewels and enamel. His paintings and sculptures evoke the work of Old Masters such as Holbein and Bosch, whilst drawing on multifarious sources, from mythology and religion to poetry, literature, art history, textiles and decorative arts from both eastern and western traditions, all infused with the artist's imagination.
