Calcutta-born, London–based painter Raqib Shaw (born 1974) builds his mythic universe from early-nineteenth-century French colonial art. His man-animal characters and fantastic landscapes starts as line drawings that are filled in with ink and paint and then further enhanced with enamel, lead glass and gilding. This volume is published for his first solo show in Paris.
