It starts with spilled blood red paint and it ends with surfaces covered in symbolic blooming flowers painted with detailed strokes of a miniaturist’s hand.
Imran Qureshi’s Solo exhibition opened at the Gallerie Thaddaeus Ropac Paris on the 19th of may and will last till july 27th. The artist is known for his juxtaposed painting style where he places random violent splatters with precisely detailed mark making, resulting into chaotic and harmonious depictions of underlying symbolism of a troubled state of his native land.
The artist was born in Hyderabad in 1972 and completed his BFA from the National College Of Arts where he currently teaches. In 2018 Christian Louboutin visited the university for a collaborative process with the artist and their creative frequency has been resonating to date, the master foot wear couturier and the artist who’s impeccable work covers the roof of the MET museum, are a team worthy of praise and reverence.
The Peshawari Chapal made in the collaborative process by MR.Louboutin for the Imran Qureshi in appreciation for the artists work and inspiration is an epitome of their ingenious collaboration.
These two legendary artists in their own respective fields sure have one thing common, the use of the color red and its unapologetic impact. May it be a Louboutin sole or a splash of Imran qureshi’s rouge paint, Red is a favorite to both of them.
For those of you who are in Paris right now or will be visiting soon, we recommend you experience this exhibition personally to fully understand the genius of Imran Qureshi, as we do know Christian Louboutin attended the opening of the show on Sunday amongst other renowned attendees. The artist with a vision this clear is bound to create history for generations to come.
