KS Radhakrishnan is an acclaimed contemporary sculptor whose sculptures are exclusively executed in the medium of bronze. His intervention in the revival of the figurative tradition in Indian sculptural parlance, with an emphasis on the body, has been acknowledged as a significant art historical milestone. Trained under modernists like Ramkinkar Baij and Sarbari Roy Choudhury, Radhakrishnan has developed an inimitable style which emphasises fluid, dynamic, extraordinary body types using two characters Musui and Maiya.R Sivakumar’s informative essay on the sculptural journey of KS Radhakrishnan is an art historical gem for serious lovers of art. In this volume, R. Sivakumar presents a highly focused study of the artist’s works of the past fifteen years, thereby offering an insightful account of the significance of KS Radhakrishnan in contemporary Indian art. Printed Pages: 112 with 74 colour & 26 b/w photographs.
