Painting A Red Sky

Discover MAP Artists

Figurative art refers to any form of art that retains strong references to the real world and objects. It also refers to the representation of the human figure in artworks, however altered it may be. It is most commonly used to describe art that explores figurative elements alongside abstract idioms, such as exaggerated colours or distorted forms.

This pack explores the work of a prominent Indian figurative artist in the MAP collection – Manjit Bawa. Bawa drew inspiration from Indian mythology and folklore, creating unique and vibrantly colored paintings and prints.
