Watch out

Artist Biswajit Das in his painting exhibition, The Indian Circus, tries to explore and present the dichotomies with his stoic observation, unique artistry and satirical story telling. The beauty of his art work is that it is bereft of any particular belief or practice as such; rather, he is trying to put himself and such like-minded others in front of a soul-searching mirror. What we would see in that mirror is a question only we can answer for ourselves. From lingual hatred to communal riots, from ugly hopes to unspoken hatred, from fragile peace to fabricated wars, from darker beliefs to brighter shames— the artist has captured our society and its dualities vividly and empathetically in his artworks

When:  April 21 to 26

Where:  AIFACS, Rafi Marg

Art is the freedom of living in the moment of creation. It is an individual journey that one has to embark but just as a child is taught to walk, speak and eat for the journey called life; Del.Art prepares art aspirants for their creative journey in the field of arts. The Del. Art exhibition revolves  around two themes — nature having the power to heal or destroy and femininity in social, cultural, political as well as emotional context. The students come from varied walks of life, from six-year-old to 60 years painting landscapes of their dreams. One of the paintings includes the effects of globalisation on earth and how everything is going to collapse eventually because of our insensitivity towards nature by Aradhita Jain.
