Raghava KK: The Guernica Project

Presented in the main space of Volte Art Projects’ Alserkal Avenue gallery, Raghava's 2021 work, entitled Guernica for the Siri-ocene, is a monumental 3.5 x 8 metre long painting that marries a wide range of inspirations, including the artist's personal research, his encounter with Picasso’s original 1937 masterpiece, and a broad spectrum of his lived experiences.

For this phygital project, Raghava KK draws on his wealth of digital experience that garnered him a record-breaking, $94,500 NFT sale at Sotheby’s last year.

A constantly growing series, The Guernica Project comprises paintings, digital prints, and a large selection of NFTs which retell Indian history through cartoon characters and memes. Harnessing the historical and the über-contemporary, Raghava tells a captivating story that rejects the binary classifications of conflict and harmony.

Raghava’s painting is displayed alongside prints of 69 NFT works created based on characters from the painting.
