Dhoomimal Gallery, in collaboration with Gallerie Splash, is presenting a solo show of Ashok Bhowmick’s paintings. From monochromes in 1974 to the use of bright solid backdrops with cross-hatched figures from 2002, his art has come a long way. “I wish my paintings would talk to the viewer as an intimate friend and not as a philosopher in the guise of a painter,” notes Bhowmick. “I do not believe in building a story outside the frame of a painting.” At Dhoomimal Gallery, Delhi, till 9 July
