Ashok Ahuja

Ashok Ahuja with a philosophical bent deconstructs an image to its very basics to predict a futuristic understanding of alternative realities. He breaks his observation of objects into form, shape, colour, texture and most importantly, into ideas. Perceptively he deals with the notion of Space and Dimension, sculpting a form from nothingness into materiality.

Ashok Ahuja trained in Film Direction at the Film and TV institute of India has written, produced and directed the national and international award-winning feature films 'Aadharshila' and 'Vasundhara'. He is one of the pioneers of Digital Art in India and his works have been showcased in several galleries across cities.

This includes the Japan Foundation in New Delhi [2017]; The Fine Art Company, Mumbai [2009]; also, with Nature Morte and IIC, New Delhi [2004].

He has been a Senior-Fellow-in-Residence at the Harvard University Center for the Study of World Religions [1991-1993]. He is the author of The Third Race, a fable published by Seagull Books in 2004. He has also written papers on the primacy of language and its role in the formation of identities.

The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
