Four Points by Sheraton, New Delhi, to Showcase Large-scale Paintings by Paresh Maity's Famed Kerala Series, from Stellar International Art Foundation Collection

Stellar International Art Foundation is pleased to loan important, large-scale paintings by Paresh Maity from his famed Kerala series to Four Points by Sheraton, New Delhi for the winter and spring of 2015.


In the spirit of the seventh edition of the India Art Fair and of New Delhi’s increasingly significant place in the Indian and Global art stage, Four Points by Sheraton will present these important works for the first time since their 2008 exhibition and since their complete acquisition by the Stellar International Art Foundation from the same. Replacing works which focus on New Delhi’s rich architecture, the presentation of paintings exploring another area of India’s bounteous cultural history reflects the increasing cultural integration enabled uniquely by the world of art.


Maity’s work already features prominently at Four Points by Sheraton in the form of sculpture and it is with pride that Stellar International Art Foundation loans some of the largest and most important pieces in celebration of this pan-Indian exploration through the eyes of the artist.


Born in Tamluk, historical town in West Bengal in 1965, Maity received his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Government College of Arts and Crafts, Kolkata, followed by Master’s Degree from the College of Art, New Delhi.


He recently held his 70th solo show in Ahmedabad and has participated in several prestigious shows in India and abroad. Several books have been published on the works of Paresh Maity, the recent amongst are 'The World on a Canvas – A Visual Voyage' based on the works inspired by various travels of artist. Maity’s work is in public and private collections all over the world, including the British Museum, the Commonwealth Development Corporation, the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi, Vatican Embassy in New Delhi, Tata Iron & Steel Co. ITC, RPG etc.


Stellar International Art Foundation:

Stellar International Art Foundation was established in 2008.


Currently the Foundation comprises over 600 works by an array of Indian and Western Contemporary artists ranging from painting to sculpture.


The collection began in the 1970s when the Choudhrie family began to purchase works of art. This led to intimate relationships with some of India’s most important contemporary artists including M F Husain, Paresh Maity and Jayasri Burman.


At the point the Foundation was created, the collection changed direction to focus on Western and American Contemporary Art, selecting important works by the most important contemporary artists working today.


The Foundation seeks to promote artists within the collection through international exhibition, loans, publications and events.
