Rameshwar Broota Biography

(b 1941) Born in 1941 in New Dheli, Rameshwar Broota is one of India’s preeminent artists. After graduating with a degree in Fine Art from the Dheli College of Art, Broota worked as a lecturer at a number of institutions before focusing on his art. His paintings capture and highlight the vulnerability of the human situation. His early works of the 1960's depict the emaciated despairing figures of laborers, highlighting his empathy with the exploited and marginalized members of society. By the 1970's these figures were transformed into 'humanized' gorillas, a metaphor for the inherent bestiality and corruption of mankind. Towards the end of the decade, the artist returned again to the human figure but presented it in a new method of paint application that has come to be known as his hallmark style. He typically paints the surface of his canvases black, and then uses a blade to scrape away layers creating light and form. Broota continues to live and work out of New Dheli and he has been the head of the art department in Triveni Kala Sangam since 1984.
