There is not much that excites me in the world of painting these days, but Mahesh Baliga is different. I came across this guy’s work while on a tour of Mumbai’s excellent art galleries last year. It brought to mind Peter Doig, Graham Dean and the late, great Reggie Pedro. Relaxed and colourful, and at times somewhat hallucinatory, these paintings are a breath of fresh air.
