Shourabh Mukherji, curator, applies his experiences of both Eastern and Western cultures in his work and molds them into an imaginative dimension through Cubism. The colors are bold and vibrant with much influence from past artists such as Pablo Picasso, Francis Newton Souza and M.F. Hussain. The themes revolve around romance, spirituality and desires - all of which the artist considers essential to life. In his recent paintings Shourabh gravitates towards sculptural forms depicting human figures in relationships. He has termed this as "Sculptural Love." Shourabh has exhibited his art across the USA and is an active member at The Center for Contemporary Art.
