“But, beyond the influence of Indian culture and its ethos, my horizons are universal. I am interested in the universalizing of the human spirit. My concepts are not regional or tribal-spiritual, and material is the matrix of my creative intent. My art springs from within and flows from my perception of the rhythm of life around me in the global context.”
– K. S. Kulkarni

Aicon is proud to present the works of Krishna Shamrao Kulkarni (1918–1994), an influential figure in the history of modern Indian art. This catalog and its corresponding solo exhibition in the New York gallery provide a glimpse into the artist’s extensive oeuvre. Thanks to a fruitful  collaboration with the artist’s family, the exhibition included canvases and works on paper created in the artist’s New Delhi studio along with art made in the 1970s and 1980s during Kulkarni’s travels around the United States. 

We are immensely grateful to have been entrusted with this rich body of work here at Aicon, and we look forward to a long continuing relationship with the K. S. Kulkarni Estate. We aim to bring together never before seen works of art and research to old admirers of his artistic practice and make a few new ones along the way.
