There’s lots that’s great at Frieze this year. It’s comforting to see familiar faces from the Indian art world on this other shore. Project 88 and Jhaveri Contemporary, both from Mumbai, are back at the fair. Nature Morte, the stalwart global art fair pioneer from New Delhi, is also back. Project 88 has staple gallery artists on display, including Neha Choksi, Rohini Devasher and Sandeep Mukherjee. A large, lush painting by Amitesh Shrivastava, one of the gallery’s new recruits, is the best work on display. Made up of monochromatic and earthy tones, the fluid brushwork makes this painting a sensory delight.
