Biju Joze | Artist-Mentor

a 2Biju Joze, a renowned sculpture and installation artist from Bangalore did his BFA in sculpture from College of Fine Arts, Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath, Bangalore and Masters of Fine Arts (Sculpture) Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S.U. Baroda. In all his works, Biju attempts to redefine the status of common objects and rediscover their innate physicality.

Biju strongly favours themes that arise out of his own personal concerns like environmentalism and animal rights, globalization and its effects, and the rapidly advancing age of information. He uses a variety of media to depict his ideas. One can observe steel, fiberglass, found objects and other conventional materials finding their way into his works. He also widely uses locally sourced organic material like betel leaves, arca-nut, tobacco leaves etc. that one may easily identify as being ‘Indian’.
