Jivya Soma Mashe
Jivya Soma Mashe is an artist of the Maharashtra state in India, who popularised the Warli tribal art form. In the 1970s the Warli Painting, which was a predominantly ritual art till that time, took a radical turn, when Jivya Mashe started to paint not for any special ritual, but on an everyday basis. His talent was soon noticed, first nationally (it was rewarded straight from the hand of India’s senior political figures such as Gandhi) then internationally (Magiciens de la terre, Centre Pompidou), bringing unprecedented recognition, which prompted many other young men to follow suit.

Sam Francis (1923-1994, USA)
Sam Francis was an American painter and printmaker. He was initially influenced by the work of abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko, Arshile Gorky and Clyfford Still. Francis spent the 1950s in Paris, having his first exhibition there in 1952. While there he became associated with Tachisme. He later spent time in Japan, and some have seen an influence from Zen Buddhism in his work. During the final three decades of his career his style of large scale bright Abstract Expressionism, which featured spontaneous and gestural applications of acrylic paint and washes, was also closely associated with Color Field painting. In 1984 Francis founded The Lapis Press with the goal of producing unusual and timely texts in visually compelling formats.
