Babu Xavier

Babu brings his canvasses alive with vivid colors and fantastic creatures. His brushes paint on full-blooded reds, vibrant yellows and sparkling blues and greens, creating nearly human figures that seem to radiate light almost like a prism. In these latest works, iconic figures gambol in the delight of an idyllic dreamscape ,the pattern that emerges and recedes allowing the viewers to take their place at various angles of the painting….. The playfulness of the artist’s cajoles the viewer into trying to decode the little clues he leaves scattered around the canvas.
