Photo - Khosa Information

Description: Khosa born 1940 has been working as a professional painter since 1962. Held ten solo shows in Delhi, Bombay and Calcutta. Having used ink, pencil and oil, he has participated in the major national and international exhibitions bringing him the 'National Award' in 1981 and the President of India's Silver Plaque in 1974. To trace his growth as a painter his works can be found in the significant collections of the National Gallery of Modern Art, Lalit Kala Academy, Sahitya Kala Parishad, International Airport Authority of India and numerous private collectors in India, America, Switzerland and England.
His artistic enquiry in the past has impelled him to collaborate with his contemporaries in poetry, literature and theatre. This endeavour resulted in journals like 'Criteria' and 'Anti-Poetry'. An experimental play blending theatre, painting and poetry was Ruchika's 'Virajpetta Se Aaye Aurat' performed at the Shri Ram Centre, New Delhi in 1987.

Such concerns also brought him the Department of Culture's senior fellowship (1979-82) for 'Integrating the visual language of Art and content and coordinating it as a whole'.

In 1986 he was asked to do the space conception and execution of the 'International Exhibition of Contemporary Cultural Complexes' by Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts.
