Biography from Saffronart

Gigi Scaria was born in 1973 in Kothanalloor, Kerala, Gigi Scaria completed his Bachelor's degree in painting from the College of Fine Arts, Thiruvananthapuram, in 1995, and his Master's degree in art from Jamia Millia University, New Delhi, in 1998. Gigi Scaria's work draws the viewer's attention towards the painful truths of migrancy and displacement. The issue of non-belonging and unsettlement reverberate between the walls on his canvas. "Gigi's particular position is to investigate how city structures, social constructs, and the view of location is translated in social prejudice and class attitude," says critic and curator Gayatri Sinha. Scaria's solo shows include 'Absence of an Architect' at Palette Art Gallery, New Delhi, in 2007; 'Where are the Amerindians?' at Inter America Space, Trinidad, in 2005 following his residency at CCA7 there; the Art Inc., New Delhi, in 2001; and Great Art Gallery, New Delhi, in 1998. Amongst his group shows, the most recent include, 'Popular Reality' at the Stainless Gallery, New Delhi, Jam Jar, Dubai, and Clark House, Mumbai, in 2008-2009; 'Keep Drawing' at Gallery Espace, New Delhi; 'Walk On Line' at Avanthy Contemporary, Zurich; 'Indiavata (India + Avatar): Contemporary Artists from India' at Gallery Sun Contemporary, Korea; 'Young Contemporary Indian Artists' at 1x1 Gallery, Dubai; 'Click! Contemporary Photography in India' at Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi; and 'Who Knows Mr. Gandhi?' at Aicon Gallery, London, all in 2008. Scaria also completed residencies in Biella, Italy in 2002 and New Delhi in 2004. In 2005, the artist was honoured with the Sanskriti Award in Visual Art. Scaria lives and works in New Delhi.
