Om Prakash: Recent Work



For over sixty years, Om Prakash has been creating complex, abstract paintings drawn from both the timeless visual culture of Indian imagery and developments in modern art. Om was born in 1932 in a small village in Bawal, Haryana, India. In 1947 Om witnessed India gain independence from Britain. India's Prime Minister, Jawahar Nehru created cultural programs to share the traditional arts of India with the rest of the world, as well as to introduce Indian artists to the radical developments in Modern Art in the West. Om Prakash was one of the beneficiaries of the program. He hyad the opportunity to travel throughout Asia, Europe and North America, voraciously seeking and studying ancient art and civilization’s great masterpieces.

After a successful exhibition at Kumar Gallery, New Delhi, he received a Fulbright Scholarship to attend Columbia University and the Art Students League in New York City, where he became friends with Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, Jasper Johns, Phillip Guston, and John Cage, amongst others. Between his travels, Om joined the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, in 1961 to teach Art and Basic Design. He set up a large studio to paint and teach batches of brilliant students who now work all over India and abroad in many creative fields. He retired from teaching in 1992. He has received many awards including a lifetime achievement award from Art Mall, a major New Delhi gallery. Om continues to paint daily in his New Delhi studio.
