Raqib Shaw’'s gloriously opulent paintings suggest a fantastical world full of intricate detail, rich colour, and jewel-like surfaces, all masking the intense violent and sexual nature of its imagery.

Populated with a wealth of hybrid creatures, Shaw portrays a dizzying scene of erotic hedonism, both explosiv (showing 500 of 1992 characters).
