An Artist's Quest
by K. K. Hebbar

This is perhaps for the first time a contemporary Indian artist explains in his own words his evolution from the imitative beginning to his present expressive and symbolic creative period. Hebbar is an internationally know artist.

Born in 1912 in South Kanara, India. Hebbar has studied art both at home and abroad. His contribution to contemporary Indian art especially in the post independence era, is very rich and varied. He has won many important awards at art exhibitions including the National Academy Awards for three successive years - 1956 '57 '58. In 1961 he received national recognition by being awarded 'Padma shri' from the President of India. His works have been published under three different titles at different times and now they are out of print. The present one is a comprehensive volume showing the full range of Hebbar's creative talent up-to-date.

Prof. V. R. Ambedkar, a noted art educationist has been following Hebbar's progress over the past three decades. He has observed in his short introduction that "Hebbar personifies everyday events and visual sights and endows them with symbolic personality. His symbols are not codified nor stereotyped with narrow traditional meaning. They are alive because they are born out of a formal situation and a formal logic of a particular painting.

And his quest continues.
