Baiju Parthan

Baiju Parthan

Biography

BAIJU PARTHAN (born 1956) took a BSc in botany and embarked on an engineering degree before escaping the sciences as well as his native Kerala. Enrolling for a BFA in Painting at the Goa College of Art, he arrived there at the height of the hippie counterculture. Parthan�s lifelong passion for cosmography, Buddhist mandalas, Jungian psychoanalysis, and shamanism originates in this period. Migrating to Bombay, Parthan joined The Times of India group as an editorial artist, working mainly for The Illustrated Weekly of India, which nurtured his literary, philosophical and artistic interests. Soon, he embraced the life of the independent artist, developing both his painting and his new-media projects, these latter being unveiled with a groundbreaking exhibition, �Brahma�s Homepage and Other Cyber Stuff (Gallery Lakeeren, Bombay, 2000). While translating his concern with pervasive global media flows from the digital to the painterly context, Parthan pioneered the trend that Nancy Adajania has described as �new mediatic realism�. Parthan has participated in numerous curated exhibitions, including �Under Construction� (Japan Foundation, Tokyo, 2002) and �ZOOM!� (co-curated by Nancy Adajania and Luis Serpa, Culturgest Museum, Lisbon, 2004). Ranjit Hoskote�s book on the artist, Baiju Parthan: A User�s Manual, was published by Afterimage, Bombay (2006).

Statement

'Base Metal' is the nomenclature used in ancient alchemy to denote a common or�any inexpensive metal that can be transmuted into Gold. Generally spoken about as the 'great work'�this alchemical process is actually a metaphor for personal transformation. I�have used these ancient alchemical references to speak about the information technology of today and its effect on our life. How cryptic computer codes and�binary streams made up of zero(s) and one(s) are transmuting our experience of reality for better or for worse.

Senaka Senanayake

Senaka Senanayake

Biography

Senaka Senanayake (born 1951) is a Sri Lankan artist who attained fame early in life as a prodigy, for his works of art. He held his first international one- man exhibition at the age of ten, in New York. Although he painted copiously and held many shows both in his native country as well as aboard, it was only after he went to Yale school for graduation in Art and Architecture did he realize that his true calling lay in the field of art. Yale, at that time was pulsating with vibrant political activities and Senaka with his family’s political background was naturally drawn to it. However, those years at Yale were more crucial for him as an artist, for till then he had been largely self taught. But at Yale, the formal classes of art training expanded his knowledge to the history of art of the entire world till then.

After moving back to Sri Lanka post Yale, Senaka immersed himself headlong into painting. His years of training at Yale had helped him evolve a mode of expression which had matured greatly. He also began to delve deeper into the various environmental issues concerning Sri Lanka. Of them, he was particularly bothered by the rapidly decreasing plight of the rain forests, and his present series of works are an attempt to engage the audiences by making them aware of this pertinent situation.

Senaka’s work has been shown at most parts of Europe and South Asia with critical acclaim. Till date he has more than 100 solo shows to his credit, and numerous group shows in the countries of Europe, China, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Czechoslovakia, Korea and Egypt to name a few. His work has been documented by Metro Goldwyn, British Movieton News, BBC TV, London, Yeo Soo TV, South Korea, TV Austria, and Star TV, India. Various journals, magazines and newspapers such as The New York Sunday Times,Washington Post. London Times, Weser Kurier, Germany, UNESCO Features, Paris, National Geographic Magazine, Asia Week and many others, too have devoted their mediums to document the talent and work of this august artist Senaka Lives and works in Sri Lanka.
