BHOPAL : A three-day painting exhibition ‘Kamli-2016’ was inaugurated by chief guest minister of culture and tourism Surendra Patwa here on Friday at Swaraj Vithika on the premises of Ravindra Bhawan.
Organised by Art and Artist Group of Raj Saini, 120 works of 40 artists are on display in the expo. The works based on various subjects and burning topics including women, nature, emotion, spiritualism, landscape, education, et al are being appreciated by art lovers. Some of them have painted women’s agony and natural beauty beautifully. For this, they used thread, paper, rope and other natural material as medium on canvas.
“Painting is my hobby since class eight but due to financial problems I was unable to pursue it. For the past two years, I’ve been learning painting under the guidance of Raj Saini. I’ve been preparing for the exhibition for last one month. I prepared my works on topic ‘Beauty of Natures’ using sponge sheet, leaves of Christmas tree, fabric colours and craftwork,” said Pawan Jagtap who is differently-abled artist.
A work ‘School Chale Hum’ of artist Shivangi Bhargava is on display which highlights the inequality in our society. In this work, she has painted some children going to school even as a poor girl sits by the side of a heap of garbage, pen and book in hand.
“I’ve been learning painting for the past two years and preparing for the show for three and four months,” said Bhargava. The exhibition will remain open for visitors till August 21 from 2 to 8pm.
