Manu Parekh is a third-generation modernist, known especially for his paintings on the city of Varanasi was greatly influenced by his surroundings and the relationship between nature and man which featured prominently in his earlier works. His preferred language is of figurative abstraction, and polemics has been his most experimented element in his painting where he has tried to show the energetic connection in the forms and the inherent sexuality within the forms. His paintings are almost tangible in the energy they exude, where strong lines and vivid colours are the integral part of his work. The result is that his paintings force us to take notice of the world around us through the emotions, anguish and angst as expressed in the subjects of his paintings. While on one hand he was influenced by Rabindranath Tagore, Ram Kinkar Baij he was also influenced by Pablo Picasso.
