The paintings of the eminent artist from Mumbai P.R.Narvekar, will be exhibited at Aakriti Art Gallery. His struggle to build up a form containing his own identity, exemplify how assimilation of tradition with universal values can find an aesthetic resurrection and uplift the local to the level of global. The uniqueness of such ‘form’ along with unveiling of the inner being of the artist enlightens a community-oriented identity that acts as a bridge between national and international ideals of beauty, transforms the local into global.

The initial conception of Gen Next was done to promote artists below forty that almost revolutionized the entire…Continue

Amitava Dhar and Sunil De are among those celebrated artists in the contemporary Indian art scenario whose works can be marked as confluence of discourses that speak of both the eternal and the peripheral. Also their works bear the synergy of socio-cultural ethos and the dynamics of the changing societal space and above all the state of being of an individual as a part of it. Though abstraction seems to be predominantly the forte of both the artists, yet the fortitude of their works is determined by the intense emoting synergy of time, beauty, agony, demise, love, loss, spirituality, angst, pain and…Continue

Manifestations of the Mystique
6th May to 31st May , 2013
The present show revisits a historical moment in art history with the works of four great acclaimed Masters of Indian art: Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy, Gopal Ghosh, and Gobardhan Ash and also makes an attempt to question a number of just stated such ‘little tested assumptions’ at a time when more mass culture has spawned its spurious harmonies. As debased modernism retreats more and more into deviance and dissonance, Aakriti Art Gallery feels…Continue
