S Safdar

by Unicorn Gallery

S. Safdar was a prolific painter and always took part in group exhibitions besides holding about a dozen one-man shows of his work. He was born in Gujrat in 1924 and made sets for films in Bombay. The artist designed stalls and set up an art sketch club between the years 1940-47.  Quite often he laboured on the background to give it a Cubist look and somehow fitted the human figure of the woman into it as part of the linear pattern. Safdar is an old master and rarely is his work available. His paintings are in the collection of serious collectors
