In a recent exhibition catalog, Owais Hussain writes, "The largest struggle we are witnessing today is not between conflicting moral beliefs, between the legal system and individual freedom, between nature and human technology; it is between our inner and outer lives, and our bodies are the area where this belief is being played out. It is the old hilosophical 'mind-body' problem coming to a crescendo as an ecological drama where the outcome rests not only upon our realization that the natural physical environment is one and the same as our bodies, but that nature itself is a form of mind.
Born in Mumbai, Owais Hussain received a B.A. in Painting from the Sir J.J. School of Arts. Since then he has participated in a number of group exhibitions at galleries around Mumbai, and at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi.
