Why would an artist take the pain of painting if he can click a shot and create art. The gap that remains between photography and photorealism is that, photography binds us to capture what we see before us. It only allows the liberty in changing the angles, hence the points of view. But art gives one, the liberty to shape the vision, shown by nature to ones own.The clear articulation of Sagar Bhowmick’s work speaks for the…See More

Eyes on Life - Drawings of Satish Gujral at Aakriti Art Gallery ,Picasso Bithi,Orbit Enclave first floor

The earlier drawings of Satish Gujral struck a chord with above all the people who, like Gujral himself, had passed through one of the most agonizing times of modern Indian history – the Partition and its aftermath. Those drawings, with a strong expressionist verve and a deep humanistic concern brought pain and despair back to our consciousness.The present set of drawings however, done over a period between 2005 and 2011, unfold an entirely different approach.

Jaundiced Agony

Terror, fear, marginalization are not the words, which we have come to know recently. The two world wars, the postcolonial hangover, and lastly the terrorization of rebel societies have crumbled the life of the common person. We have come to reside at the edge of marginalization.…See More
