Abstract: Indian art has faced a severe crisis during colonial rule, which ended with the rise of modernism when the artists started again on their expedition for true art. Himmat Shah is one of them who construct the sensible diffusion of the ‘Great’ and the ‘Little’. His works ultimately opened up to an aesthetically novel and personal individual approach. He was one such talented young artist who participated in the ‘Group 1890’ delicately and skillfully infused different classical and folk ideals with distinctive forms. His body of work introduces the methodologies of contemporary trends of modernity, materiality, individuality and existential ideas of art. His leading experiments are not restricted to scale; If Himmat engages the remnants of the past with the palpable present, he also encourages and coaxes out other narratives from the accumulation of the earth surface. Himmat’s childhood passed in village ‘Lothal’, a major archaeological site of Indus Valley Civilization. So in his work, there is a powerful affinity between the tribal icons which have held communities together in our country for centuries. The time period of Shah as an artist is stretched between 1953 to the present day. It is been long but he is an active practitioner of modernism in art. Though his journey started from a village he had explored himself to the global scenario as an artist.
