The painting "Untitled" was done in 2008. When the artist arrived in Paris in 1967 his works were still figurative but he drastically fell into geometrical abstraction. Gradually he became more and more sensitized to Indian tradition, culture and ritual forms. This work is the output of the path he followed over the previous years.
