Artist of the day
Abdul Aziz Raiba
Born into a tailor’s family in Bombay, A. A. Raiba received a scholarship to study at Sir J. J. School of Art. In 1956, he won a gold medal from Bombay Art Society and an award from Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, in 1962. Belonging to a mixed ancestry of Hindu, Maratha and Islamic lineage, Raiba was a modern artist seeking a secular space in his art that would allow these diverse influences to be assimilated into a personal language.
