Himmat Shah is one of Indiaâs greatest living sculptors. His sculptures, both in terracotta and bronze, explore materiality as well as texture, presenting life and its realities in various ways. The elongated heads, abstracted features, and phallic references in his bronzes, all form key themes of his oeuvre. Among his most recognizable works is the series of sculpted heads in bronze and terracotta. This book showcases the thirty-six bronzes he produced over a decade (2007â18) at the Bronze Age Foundry in London.
HIMMAT SHAH was born in 1933 at Lothal in Gujarat. After studying art at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda (1956â61), he spent two years at the legendary Atelier 17, Paris (1966â67), on a scholarship from the French government, under S. W. Hayter.
