1914 - 1990
Shiavax Chavda exhibited with the Bombay Progressives. He studied at the Sir JJ school of Art, Mumbai. He continued his training at the Slade School, London and later at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere, Paris. He sought inspiration in the village and tribal traditions of India: temples, ancient art traditions and rural life. Energetic depictions of traditional Indian dancers and musicians such as ‘The Dancer’ are a hallmark of Chavda's work.
