ARTIST CATALOGUE / S
Born 1945 in Mumbai, Shamshad Husain trained at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda and at the Royal College of Art, London. Husain discovered his love for the brush early in life, and held his first solo show as early as 1968. His time at the Royal College of Art gave new perspective to his work, and set the course of his career as an artist.
Hailing from a family of illustrious names in art and creative fields, Shamshad Husain came to carve out his own niche working with paint and graphics. He is also known for his forays into other mediums, working on a few commissioned sculptures and executing two murals- one in Jaipur and one in New Delhi.
Husain has exhibited extensively, with numerous solo and group shows, and international art festivals to his credit. He was conferred a National Award by the Lalit Kala Akademi in 1983, and was subsequently conferred the Government of India Fellowship from 1983-85.
Shamshad Husain died in 2015.
