Infinite Light’ is a major and multi-genre upcoming exhibition of the work of the renowned artist Paresh Maity. Spread over a period of 5 months, over the 4 metro cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore, this exhibition brings together the various art forms that Paresh has explored during his artistic journey. 

The vast repertoire of artworks on display span a time frame from the 1990’s to his most recent creations, each one bearing his signature strength and mastery over medium and colour, combining elements of paintings, large scale installations, sculpture, theatre and soundscape.

Art Musings, who is presenting the exhibition in Mumbai, has worked with Maity over a period of time, collaborating with him on a number of exhibitions. The Mumbai chapter, which opens on 4th December ’22 and spans a period of 40 days, is being held at an off-site venue, Snowball Studios, before moving on to other galleries (venues below). The mammoth exhibition is a show of the kind that, neither in scale nor grandeur, India has witnessed before.


Paresh has been working tirelessly to realize this project, and he says: “This exhibition is a culmination of years of quest, seeking to capture the essence of nature. The most important inspiration in my work is nature. As an artist I observe, perceive and imagine – an image forms itself which I then express on canvas. Impulse is always there, it is inherent, when I paint I try to express that inner essence and depict that onto my artwork. It is the spirit that drives me and my work.” 

Honoured with the Padma Shri by the Government of India, Paresh has held more than 80 solo exhibitions of his work across the globe in the course of his career. His works have been acquired by major institutions including the British Museum, London, the Rubin Museum of Art, New York, the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, and the Birla Academy of Art and Culture, Kolkata. Several books have been published on his art. Among his public commissions is a monumental painting at Terminal 3, Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi. This is one of the largest paintings across the world in a public space.
