About Sayed Haider Raza • Syed Haider Raza alias SH Raza is an Indian artist who has lived and worked in France since 1950, but maintains strong ties with India. • He became India’s priciest modern artist in June 2010 when his seminal work titled Saurashtra was sold for 16.42 crore rupees at a Christie’s auction. • Raza’s work represents the origins of life and draws on symbols that tribal painters and highly sophisticated Indian philosophers have traced, pondered and mulled over for millennia.
