Govinda Sah - Transcriptions - October Gallery
TRANSCRIPTIONS, Govinda Prasad Sah’s first solo exhibition at October Gallery, will be on display from January 27 to February 26, 2011.
Sah’s new acrylic paintings are based on fantastical cloud formations and tumultuous skies, which he depicts through large exploding canvases. He explores the transcription of molecular structures and the mystery of how nothing becomes something.
Sah’s artistic vision is a deeply spiritual one. Born in Nepal, he began working with the cloud as a symbol for peace and declared with a slogan, ‘the 21st Century is the Century of Art and Peace’.
His artistic career began as a signboard painter in India, before he followed his dream to become a student of Fine Art. Graduating from Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal and Wimbledon College of Arts, London, his determination to succeed as an artist led to renowned fellow artist Govinda Dongol to dub him ‘Lion heart’.
Times: Tuesday to Saturday from 12.30 – 5.30pm.
