Satish Gujral Biography, Life, Artworks
His varying reactions to life have found new forms and media to express his ideas and experiences, with the result that the five decades of Gujral’s work constitute a vivify- ing force in the art scene of India.
His complex artistic metaphor and his vision come, above all, from his personal experiences.
With his physical handicaps, Satish has been both object and subject for his exploration of the human personality.

His work, in a sense, is the expression of his inner development. His visions and fantasies have been born of his psychic nature, and are an expression of his urge towards self-realization. Satish has made a breakthrough at every stage of his creative journey.
We have his dynamic social-realistic paintings of the Partition using the Mexican device of grotesque distortions, in Revolution and Snare of Memory (1952-59); diversion towards abstraction (1959-63), leading to continued interest in abstractionism in his multi-media sculptural reliefs executed with extraordinary skill in three-dimensional yantric images (1972-77) such as Madhyama or Sahasra Chakra.
His series of paintings Playmates, which depict a blissful expression in his suave treatment of human form, are perceived psychic images mediated by the senses (1986).
He has to his credit large-scale ceramic murals and the extra-ordinary architectural achievement of designing the Belgian Embassy in New Delhi, besides many other projects in India and abroad.
Satish is one of the few important contemporary artists who have been directly concerned with the external world— the world of social events, political repression, erotic enslavement.
In his work, wherein the native and the Mexican art traditions intermingle to produce a spectacular aesthetic effect, seem to burst forth forcefully towards the viewer to envelop his mind.
Each depiction has resulted from a mood; the mood itself is evolving by an aesthetic experience. As he says: A reference to the past, to tradition, does not necessarily produce ‘kitch’, provided one assimilates the past rather than imitates it.
As a powerful expressionist, Satish Gujral creates a form-language that evokes mystical feelings.
