"Other Masters”

Jivya Soma Mashe appartient à la tribu Warli située dans l'Etat du Maharashtra à 150 km au Nord de Bombay.
L'œuvre de Jivya Soma Mashe, âgé de plus de 70 ans, est reconnue, tant au niveau national qu'international. En Inde, dès les années 1970, des personnalités politiques importantes, comme Nehru et Indira Gandhi, et des personnalités artistiques renommées, comme B. Kulkarni et J. Swaminathan, lui ont apporté soutien et reconnaissance.
A l'étranger, Jivya Soma Mashe a participé à de nombreuses expositions majeures dont “les magiciens de la Terre” (Paris 1989) et, récemment, “Richard Long / JS Mashe, Dialog” (Düsseldorf 2003 et Milan 2004).
Son œuvre, réalisée à l'aide de moyens picturaux réduits à l'essentiel, est un éloge au mouvement et évoque ainsi, l'un des principes fondateurs de la pensée indienne.
Jivya Soma Mashe fait partie de ces “Other Masters”, titre de la célèbre exposition organisée par Jyotindra Jain au Craft Museum de New Delhi, en 1998, grâce auxquels la richesse et la diversité culturelle de l'Inde s'affichent, au regard du monde, comme unique.


“Other Masters”

Jivya Soma Mashe is a member of the Warli tribe from the State of Maharashtra, 150 kilometers north of Bombay.
Jivya Soma Mashe is now over 70, and his work has received considerable recognition both nationally and internationally. Beginning in the 1970's, important Indian personalities such as Nehru and Indira Ghandi as well as other renowned artists such as B. Kulkarni and J. Swaminathan were among the first to recognize and support the artist.
Jivya Soma Mashe has also participated in many major exhibitions outside India, including “Les Magiciens de la Terre” in Paris, 1989, and, more recently, “Richard Long/J.S. Mashe, Dialog” (Düsseldorf 2003 and Milan 2004).
His œuvre uses pictorial elements that are reduced to their essentials in praise of movement and also as a hommage to one of the fundamental principles of Indian thought.
Jivya Soma is among the artists shown in “Other Masters”, the name of a well-known exhibition curated by Jyotindra Jain at the Craft Museum of New Delhi in 1998 as a forum for the cultural richness and diversity of India which, in the eyes of the world, is considered unique.
