In times like these, art can inspire and keep life colourful. In an initiative sure to delight art enthusiasts and collectors, a New Delhi-based art gallery is kickstarting ‘Collector’s Weekend’, an exclusive selection of artworks by eminent artists every alternate Friday.
The Art Alive Gallery initiative aims to brighten up your weekend with selected art by Masters, Contemporaries and generation next artists. In the coming weeks, a series of selected works carefully curated will be showcased. Along with works by masters, upcoming contemporary talent transcending across various genres of art will also be presented.
In the first edition of the series, artworks by five of the most illustrious names in Indian art – SH Raza, Krishen Khanna, Sakti Burman, Jogen Chowdhury and ThotaVaikuntam will be seen.
The aesthetic vision of Raza is beautifully captured in the master’s recurrent and most iconic symbol of the Bindu while Sakti Burman’s distinct style plays out on the canvas as he draws inspiration from mythology, experience and history. Caught between imagination and desire and constantly being navigated through personal experiences, Krishen Khanna’s expressionist brush technique offers a glimpse of many untold stories.
Jogen Chowdhury’s practice, deeply rooted in understanding the socio-political fabric of society is depicted by bold brush strokes that dominate his monochrome canvas.
On the other hand, ThotaVaikuntam’s art comes to life showcasing the vibrant colours of Telangana through his graceful feminine characters.
Collector’s weekend can be accessed live every alternate Friday with a new selection of works onwww.artalivegallery.com.
