Born in Calcutta in 1971, Raqib Shaw graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art in London. His work shows figures that are hyperreal and detailed amongst impossible architecture. Inspired by Hieronymous Bosch's fifteenth century visionary triptych, Shaw’s works similarly titled ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’ celebrate a society free of any moral restraint, fusing an array of vibrantly painted flora and fauna in an ecosystem inhabited by fantastical creatures. Shaw’s works use mixed media like glitter, crystal as well as enamel and metallic industrial paints to show the effect of a porcupine quill.
