Horses – The Energy

Shahi Shah's horses explore the Hindu myths in surrealist form and are symbolic. Horses are the recurrent images in his artwork which symbolizes the power or energy. Sometimes his horses are beyond the canvases in a sculpture form. Skillfully made from recycled newspapers, wires and found materials, his horses are masculine in viewing and have an energetic movement.
