Personal Pop showcases the idiosyncratic work of the unknown, prematurely deceased, highly promising Bangladeshi-British artist Shah Jahan (b. 1976, Sylhet, Bangladesh; d. 2015, Birmingham, UK).

About

Shah Jahan, Bangladesh born, grew up in Birmingham, studied at the Ruskin School of Art at Oxford University, and worked in Amsterdam from 1998 to 2001 as a resident at De Ateliers, where he was seen as an artist with a bright future. His work is strikingly varied, comprising videos, paintings, collages, clothing, and drawings that blend the fabric of his own everyday life with the language of pop art and popular culture.
 
Shah’s unique ideas about art, his drive to produce, his unbridled ambition, and the great promise all those strengths added up to were overshadowed by his mental health problems and his early death at 38. Cut down in his prime, he was never able to achieve full maturity as an artist. The body of work Shah left behind is full of energy and fascinating subject matter and reveals an artist with a deep understanding of art history and a Warholian drive to produce. We can’t wait to introduce you to his work in Personal Pop.
