Art is a sheer joy to the eyes impacting one’s soul. It is an expression that origins from an unknown dimension that we can touch and feel around. Art is the ‘HOPE’ that determines the future of a country. Artists are mediums that listen to the sound of nature while they are the chosen ones to form a connecting dot from the infinite to the visible. Realization is a true strength that they possess along with a strong sense of responsibility as they play an important role in shaping the society through their expressions.
Science is an answer to one’s inquisitiveness. It is a never ending quench of the human mind “to know”. It is that discovery that contributes to the betterment of humanity with a constant goal of knowing more.
An art gallery setup inside the mall features a dazzling array of paintings and art installations. The modernist paintings of Padma Vibhushan awardee K G Subramanyan. The masterpieces of Rupchand Kundu. The clay sculptures of Shafeeque Punatihl. The minimalist paintings of master water colorist Spoorthy Murali. The works of puppeteer Dattatreya Aralikatte. The ‘Engineering Art’ of Mr. Ramji, who uses his engineering skills to create scale models of anything under the sun. In short, the exhibition offered a glimpse of the spectacularly vast spectrum of contemporary Indian art.
The festival is taking place at Phoenix Marketcity Bengaluru from 24 January – 5 March. We invite you to be a part of what promises to be a very illuminating affair.
