“Shubham Malav, hailing from the historic city of Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, brings a unique perspective shaped by his contemplation in the hills. His upbringing in a region known for historic forts and palaces has influenced his perception, revealing underlying themes of strife, violence, and the thirst for control over land and people.
Traversing diverse landscapes of India, Shubham empathetically connects with individuals who have experienced hardship and darkness. His canvases express complex emotions of pain, anger, anguish and bitterness prevalent in society. His distinctive drawing style, characterized by colorful and exaggerated features creates a detailed fantasy world mirroring the disturbing realities of our society.
‘The King of Ruins’ unfolds Shubham Malav’s exploration of the relentless pursuit of dominance that crushes peace and humanity. From the race to the top to the development of weapons for war, the exhibition captures the ubiquitous nature of power struggles evident in street discord and global divisions,” says the note issued by the curators of the Show.
