It was a very pleasant and enriching experience for me to inaugurate the exhibition organised by Ms. Rubeena Beg , Secretary ,State Lalit Kala Akademi.U.P. on April7,2015(Tuesday) at Lal Baradari Bhawan,Lalit Kala Akademi,Lucknow.
The two artists whose creations were on display were Sri Deepti Prakash Mohanty of Varanasi , and Sri Subir Roy of Lucknow.The paintings of Mohanty mainly related to the ghats and streets of Varanasi.The photo pictures of Subir Roy related to Lucknow,Tribal areas near Vishakhapatnam and sand dunes of Jaisalmer. , Goa ,and Hooghly.Mohanty's paintings showed an artistic use of colour and imagination .Roy showed life and death in different artistic forms.It was all uplifting and beautiful.
I realised how artists bring out the most beautiful,the most lofty and the most real in a manner which remains with us long after we have watched the paintings and the pictures.
I thanked the artists and the organisers for giving me and others this beautiful experience.
