  • ABOUT Manu Parekh

    Born in 1939 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, Manu Parekh completed his Diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai, in 1962. Parekh compels the viewer to feel the emotion, pain and anguish expressed in the subjects of his paintings. The colours and forms in his art exude an energy that can’t be contained within the confines of his canvas, and become an extension of the artist's personality. Parekh’s early work explored the relationship between man and nature. The city of Banaras plays an integral role in his work, since his first visit there after his father’s death.

    Manu Parekh’s works are in prestigious private and public art collections in India and abroad, such as the National Gallery of Modern Art (New Delhi) the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, (Mumbai), the Lalit Kala Akademi (New Delhi) and Punjab University Museum (Chandigarh).

    In 1972, he was awarded the President of India's Silver Plaque and in 1982, he received the National Award from the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi. In 1992, the Government of India awarded Manu Parekh the Padma Shri. He lives and works in New Delhi.

  • ABOUT Limited Edition Prints

    Limited Edition Prints are a series of identical prints of an artwork, commissioned by the artist. Restricted to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces, each print is numbered and signed by the artist, establishing its’ authenticity.

    Because the number of prints is limited, signed prints of acclaimed artists hold value, and can be investment-worthy, just like original works of art. Christie’s and Sotheby’s – the world’s two most renowned auction houses – hold auctions exclusively for prints. A Pablo Picasso print sold for US$1.7 million in 2010!

    There are different techniques in printmaking, including offset printing, digital printing, lithography and serigraphy. Serigraphy, or silk screen printing is considered one of the most sophisticated techniques. In this process, thick, opaque colours are passed through the screen, creating prints with vibrant colours and beautiful textures, that make the artwork look like a painting.

    Works by any artist are limited, and prints are a fantastic way for acclaimed artists, to make their art available to a larger number of people. This makes limited edition prints popular amongst new art buyers as well as seasoned art collectors.
