Raqib Shaw

Last weekend I spent a rainy Saturday at an exhibition by artist Raqib Shaw.
His work is quite spectacular (unfortunately my pictures do not do it justice in the slightest) - intricate detailing created with the use of strong opulent colours, yet it is intriguing more than overpowering. His paintings symbolise what chaos the world would be like in the absence of a god, something which is thought provoking and a conversation starter whether you are religious or not.
If you are interested in art he is definitely someone to keep on your radar.
