In New Delhi, the “Dhoomi Mall Gallery”, considered the best art space at that time, gave him the opportunity to show his work and to interact and form liaisons with the exponents of the vanguard neo-symbolist, informalist and neo-tantric movements of that country. Among them are names that are now reference of contemporary art from India, such as Swaminathan, SatishGujurat, Santosh, Francis Souza, etc., etc. During this period he was warmly welcomed by critics and the international press in India and began his experimentations in “object-painting”, adding sequins and textile to his artistic research. Subsequently, he studied calligraphy in Beijing, China and ‘Bantu’ art, in Libreville, Gabon, Central Africa.

IRREVERSIBLE MAGAZINE & PROJECTS are inspired by the Danish artist Palle Nielsen’s project The Model: A Model for a Qualitative Society, that took place in 1968 at the Moderna Museet Stockolm – a playground in the museum – where Nielsen posed questions such as to have the chance for the artists to “become themselves,” and express their own reality through play in a setting unfettered by the urban environment and adapted to their energetic activity. One of Nielsen’s big achievements was to open doors to discuss how this project takes art and activism’s in new directions, functioning precisely like a model: a small-scale, concrete experiment with speculative potential.
