Kaiko Moti

Kaiko Moti's philosophy, a philosophy he lives, is Art. More contemplative than descriptive, he endeavors to analyze his sensations before nature in order to better recreate its essence. This quest underlies each one of Moti's works, the quest for that entity which makes the illusory differences of the real vanish, For Moti, this essence is captured in life as movement, the movement that permits plays of light and dark and space. Born in Bombay, India, in 1921, Moti attended the Bombay School of Fine Arts for five years. He then went to London on a scholarship from the University College. Later he worked under MacWilliam and Reginald Butler. After moving permanently to Paris in 1950, he studied sculpture for three years with Zadkine.
Because of a lack of space and the difficulties of working in Paris, Moti turned from sculpture to engraving, studying with W. S. Hayter. Since then he has been primarily noted as an engraver working on copper plates. His work has been shown virtually throughout the world, including the Biennale in Venice, the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, the New York Public Library, the New Delhi Museum of Art.
Moti is represented in the permanent collections of many major museums and galleries, among them the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Paris Musee d'Art Moderne, and the Bibliotheque Nationale. He is an honorary member of the Academy of Florence.
