Raqib Shaw

September 16, 2013

Raqib Shaw is an Indian-born, London-based artist known for his opulent and intricately detailed paintings of imagined paradises, inlaid with vibrantly coloured jewels and enamel. Incorporating gems, rhinestones, glitter, and metallic enamel paints, Shaw creates not only provocative visual experiences but also an ironic commentary on material opulence.
