Gieve Patel is an Indian painter, poet, playwright and a practising physician. He was born in 1940 in Mumbai. He studied medicine from Grant Medical College. He was part
of this group of artists like Bhupen Khakkar and Gulam Mohammed Sheikh who emerged in the mid-60s and brought a fresh perspective to Indian art instead of solely
focusing on the Paris school that was in vogue during that time. He held his first exhibition in Mumbai in 1966 at Jehangir Art Gallery. He published his first collection of
poems that same year. For Gieve Patel the human body is of utmost importance. He observes the everyday life around him, the mundane and transfers those observations into his work.
A self-taught artist Gieve Patel has come a long way since his first solo show in 1966.
Some of his other notable solo exhibitions include ‘Gieve Patel’ at Pundole Art Gallery, Mumbai in 1972, ‘Gieve Patel Paintings 1997-2000’, Gallery Chemould, Mumbai in
2000, ‘Wells Clouds Skulls’, Bose Pacia, New York in 2011 and ‘Footboard Rider’ at Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke, Mumbai in 2011. In 1984 he received the Woodrow
Wilson Fellowship, Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC and the Rockefeller
Fellowship, University of Chicago in 1992. He was also selected for the C.R. Parekh
Writer in Residence, Nirman Foundation Grant at the University of Pennsylvania in
2003. The artist continues to live and work in Mumbai.
