Renowned New York-based sculptor Tarik Currimbhoy, celebrated for his expertise in arts, industrial design, and architecture, is poised to unveil his distinguished reverse curve sculptures at the 15th Edition of the India Art Fair (booth PO7). Trained across multiple disciplines, including arts, industrial design, and architecture, Tarik’s artistic journey explores tranquility, simplicity, and tactility, embodied in the purity of form and material within both architecture and sculpture.
Inspired by ancient architectural principles of tension and compression, Tarik’s sculptures, originally grounded in stone, have transformed into dynamic expressions in metal and wood, narrating tales of structure and gravity.
Fascinated by the forces of energy in nature, such as a bouncing ball or sailing boats, Tarik expresses, “These are forces of energy in nature that inspire me deeply. With this, I create my sculptures. The DIYA and reverse curve sculptures were also such an inspiration, and I’m excited to have them displayed at the India Art Fair.”
Tarik’s sculptures, ranging from table-top pieces to monumental installations, have received global acclaim and found homes in collections across America, Europe, South America, Singapore, the Middle East, and India. His notable installations include a kinetic “Cobra” sculpture at the Museum of Photography and Art in Bangalore and “Rockers” sculptures at Bengaluru International Airport.
Beyond sculpture, Tarik has led his architecture and design firm for 40 years, integrating modern design with ancient Indian handcrafting techniques at Sana Stone.
Tarik Currimbhoy’s artistic journey, featuring the DIYA and reverse curve sculptures, enriches the India Art Fair with a blend of tranquility, simplicity, and tactility. His presence promises to elevate the cultural landscape with explorations of gravity, balance, movement, and stasis, encapsulating the allure of form and material.
