This auction is raising proceeds for War Child UK
Mahesh Baliga presents the world as he witnesses: his own time, the people who belong to this time, the resources one shares, a world where everyone is in it sometimes through metaphors and sometimes through a deadpan narration. The local, the small scale the eccentric and the ordinary finds a place in his work. He likes collecting and engaging with everyday objects. Discarded places, underdogs, simple acts of human life without any halos and parables throng the canvases. He often uses his own identity which stands out against any ideas of singularity as it is seeped with histories of migration from Goa to Karnataka and then Baroda .The landscapes are thus not specific but overlays each other.
