Deities, Demons, and Dudes with ‘Staches: Indian Avatars by Sanjay Patel
November 11, 2011 - April 22, 2012

I just chanced upon the Asian Art museum’s website after trying to put a link up for it on my blog post about TeZukA, and I’m pleasantly surprised by their Maharaja: Splendor of India exhibition. For one, thing, it’s impressive enough that they’re having a really extensive collection of artifacts from the collection of the India’s great kings, but I was drawn to the cartoon imagery they were using on their front page. I’ve seen the same type of style before.

A few minutes with my bookshelf, and BAM! That’s the art style of Sanjay Patel, who published his reimagining of the Ramayana a few years back. You can find his website here, and learn about the exhibition through his own words here.
