Alwar Balasubramaniam

Alwar Balasubramaniam is an Indian contemporary sculptor known for his innovative and thought-provoking works that explore the relationship between form, space, and perception. Born in 1971 in Tamil Nadu, India, Balasubramaniam received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from the Government College of Arts & Crafts in Chennai and later pursued his Master of Fine Arts in sculpture at the Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland. His sculptures often incorporate unconventional materials such as fiberglass, silicone, and resin, and are characterized by their fluid, organic forms that seem to defy the laws of physics. Balasubramaniam's work is deeply influenced by his interest in the concept of the void and the relationship between positive and negative space. He frequently creates sculptures that appear to be in a state of flux, with forms that seem to emerge from or disappear into the surrounding space. His Emerging Angel series, for example, features life-sized human figures that appear to be rising out of the ground or wall, their bodies only partially visible. Balasubramaniam's sculptures have been exhibited widely in India and internationally, including at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, the Saatchi Gallery in London, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He has received numerous awards and honors for his work, including the prestigious Sanskriti Award for Visual Art in 2002. Through his innovative and visually striking sculptures, Balasubramaniam continues to push the boundaries of contemporary art and inspire new ways of perceiving the world around us.
