Born in 1969, Rahim Mirza completed his art education at Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal, where he studied printmaking.
The leaf occupies a central motif in much of his work, representing, perhaps, a multiplicity of emotions; while the appearance of the first leaf signifies Spring and renewal, the shedding of the brown leaves in Autumn heralds the onset of winter. It is these subtleties and the complexity of the simple motif that intrigue the artist. In its multiplicity, the artist creates rhythm and meaning that is far beyond its reach.
The artist was honored with the Raza Foundation Award in 2005, and in 1997 won the Madhya Pradesh State Award, Bhopal.
