Every artist is bothered by the anxiety of influence - what is his relationship to the past, and to past masters? This issue is pushed to the fore for Shamshad Husain, son of M.F. Husain. Though he has chosen to succeed his father in the medium of painting, he has carved out an individualistic pictorial space, working within the Indian tradition without finding himself hampered by a legacy.

Husain's art schooling began at the M S University of Baroda, which he describes as "delightful. There was immense freedom of experimentation, and there were no walls between students and teachers." After graduating from Baroda, Husain went on to the London's Royal College of Art.

The artist passed away on 24th October, 2015
