About Pratap Morey:
Art and Architecture through their visual effect and spatial excellence often intertwine the mutual feeling in humans – of being seen, heard and understood. One of the finest forms of creative expression would be aligning these two schools of thought, and renowned Mumbai-based artist Pratap Morey explores this in the most exceptional formats. His intricate paper works merge digital photography, historical prints, architectural drawings, and engravings to explore themes of construction, redevelopment, and displacement in the shifting city of Mumbai.
Through his exceptional use of form and space, Pratap’s artworks are abstract interpretations of urbanization presented as relief sculptures. He has held solo exhibitions including in TARQ- Mumbai (2019); Space Gachang- South Korea (2017). Not just this, Pratap has participated in various residencies at institutions such as Space Studios, Vadodara (2017); Gachang Art Studio- South Korea (2017); and more. He has also been receiving awards and residencies, and recently was also invited to design Facebook India’s Gurgaon office.
Pratap Morey’s work is truly exceptional in its ability to visually and spatially convey the human experience of being seen, heard, and understood.
