The Arts

The Eyes of the Thar brings the desert in western Rajasthan alive through the sensitive eyes of the multi-talented artist Satish Gupta. His poetry and drawings come together, words and images weaving an intricate web of reflection, repose, distance and intimacy as they meld thought and feeling and compel one to pause and wonder. The reader is taken on a timeless journey through the carved havelis, the frescoed walls, the wondrous life of royalty and the colours of desert fairs, to the vast open expanses of the dunes with nomads on camel backs winding their way through eternity. His poems have been published in the broken wave and translated in Spanish and Catalan. About the Author Satish Gupta has travelled extensively in the Thar desert in western Rajasthan, living with nomads and experiencing the desert in all its intensity. He has held one-man shows on his desert series in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Calcutta, the Gallery Bose-Pacia Modern in New York and the Gallery GO in Amsterdam. Satish Gupta was born and lives in Delhi.
