HARISH OJHA

HARISH OJHA

Born in Amethi, India, 1984; lives and works in Lucknow, India

In Harish Ojha's paintings, indigenous nuances are quite apparent. Being brought up in rural India, he still finds himself attached to those Indigenous wooden toys of bright colors (mainly red and green).These invaluable treasures of his childhood are the main motifs of his Paintings. By adding these indigenous elements in his otherwise contemporary idiom, Harish revives folk imagery to merge it with his own individual style. Harish has achieved a synthesis of traditional and modern, a unique perspective wherein his work floats between representational and abstract. Harish began his artistic endeavor in the University of Allahabad with a BFA in Painting and Mural

Harish has been awarded the 58th National Award, New Dehli, 2017 and has participated widely in solo as well as group exhibitions all over India and abroad. His selected group shows abroad include, Lukin art fair by south Korea gallery 2016, Jung art Gallery South Korea, 2015 and a three month residenct programme in 2011. His solo shows in India include, Apparao gallery at Mangoolia club New Dehli 2015, Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi. 2013 and selected group shows include Jehangir Art Gallery, 2015, Asian art show in New Delhi AIFACS art gallery, 2014, Colour of Bhopal Group Show at Bharat Bhawan, 2010, Mindscape show Studio 21 Gallery, Kolkata, 2009, Variation at Lalit Kala Academy, Chennai, 2007
