Ayla Angelos, It's Nice That, 19 January 2021

The Mumbai-based artist talks us through his geometric works, rooted on the grounds of politics and socio-economic experiences.

The portfolio of Mumbai-based artist Sameer Kulavoor is replete with large-scale, geometric metropolises – the type of work that gives a gentle nod to Picasso’s cubism for the ways in which it contrasts reality with painting. Within these pieces, you’ll find buildings, city streets and the people that occupy them composed in a myriad of mediums, all of which explore the impact of time, culture, politics and socio-economic conditions on our surroundings.
