Biography   Krishna Ara


Born near Hyderabad, India, in 1914, Krishnaji Howlaji Ara lived a diverse life.  He was an orphan by age 10 and worked as a car cleaner for a Japanese company.  He finally found his way to art in the late 1930s, and landed his first solo show by 1942 at the Bombay Art Society, despite lacking the formal training of his peers.

Ara became a member of the revolutionary Progressive Artist's Group in 1948, a group of six foundational artists who wanted to "look at the world from an Indian way, not a British way," according to Sayed Haider Raza, another member, as quoted in The New York Times. 

Ara's most notable exhibitions include the Progressive Artists Group's inaugural show, at the Bombay Art SocietyChristies, Mumbai   ...  Displaying 767 of 3785 characters.
