About Desmond Lazaro

Desmond Lazaro (b. 1968 Leeds, live and works in Pondicherry) began working in the Rajasthani Pichhvais tradition after studying a BA in Fine Arts at the University of Central Lancashire; MA in Painting at MS University of Baroda; and MA in Visual Islamic and Traditional Art at the Prince of Wales Institute of Architecture in London. He undertook an apprenticeship to Master Bannu Ved Pal Sharma, whose family have practiced the craft of Pichhvais painting for more than seven generations, before returning to the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in London to pursue a PhD. His research project, entitled ‘Methods, Materials and Symbolism in the Pichhvais Painting Tradition of Rajasthan’ (2005), was published as a book by Mapin India. In 2006, he founded The Traditional Arts Trust which supports families in Rajasthan who continue to produce new Pichhvais paintings in the traditional manner, despite overwhelming odds.

About Homelands

Through photography, sculpture, painting, performance and film, Homelands tells stories of migration and resettlement in South Asia and beyond, as well as violent division and unexpected connections. The exhibition engages with displacement and the transitory notion of home in a region marked by the repercussions of the Partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, and the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, as well as by contemporary migration. The artists explore intimate and political histories, often contesting borders, questioning common pasts and imagining new futures.
