In Black and White: The Authorized Biography Of Manjit Bawa
In Black and White: The Authorized Biography Of Manjit Bawa
Description
From the Jacket:

It began humbly enough born in a cowshed into a once-illustrious family, Manjit Bawa displayed no signs of genius as he played truant at school and with a rooster tucked rakishly under his arm, frequented cockfighting competitions. To keep him out of trouble his elder brother manmohan a commercial artist, made Manjit model for him, until Manjit, mesmerized by the magic of pencil and charcoal tried his own hand at art.

When he decided to make a career of it petty politics and prejudices at the Delhi art college and beyond connived to smother him but Manjit persevered vigilante-like to challenge the system and find his won voice. Rejecting his contemporaries who blindly aped Western trends Manjit chose to base his art on Indian mythology and references, shunning greys, dull blues and browns and adopting as his own brazen yellows, luminous greens, bright crimson, turquoise and indigo. Though critics and buyers alike resisted him initially it was not long before a Bawa solo show was completely sold out.

Chronicling Manjit Bawa's personal and professional life and the myriad experiences and influences that shaped him as an artist and a man Ina Puri presents to us his various facets-artist, poet, pacifist, singer, musician, actor, father and friend. She gives us delightful peeks into Bawa's life and his milieu as he cycles across the countryside with charcoal stick in hand, sketching bearded fakirs, Sufi singers and monuments in ruins; walks behind Bertrand Russell in an anti-war Procession in London and organizes along with fellow artists, Rejects 1984, an exhibition to deride the establishment which had spurned their works.

Evocative and insightful, In Black and White has a Manjit Bawa says in his foreword the right mix of colours.
