The strokes of nature

Posted by on Saturday, August 31st, 2013

This 11-day International art workshop showcasing works of 21 artistes of national and International repute has travelled to the City Palace, Udaipur. The workshop, after touching thousands of art connoisseurs at Ranakpur, will be held at Zenana Mahal, City palace, Udaipur. It gets inaugurated today at 5pm and continues through 2nd September, 2013.

The Inspiration

Art is inspiring. But what inspires art? The nature that surrounds us and the culture that’s inside us. What better inspiration than Rajasthan and Mewar per say? With its glorious heritage, rich culture and striking natural mix of mountains, greens and lakes, Mewar was an obvious inspiration for improving the art works that had captured the vivid Rajasthan on the canvas.

So, nature does inspire art. And art returns the favour and captures it forever. In the heart and mind of the artist. And on the canvas. For us to see what they see and feel what they feel. And for the generations to know their history better. So, what really led Art Symposia to kick start?

•  The desire to give a new dimension to the cultural milieu of Rajasthan through an appreciated medium.
•  To enhance the interest of masses and upcoming artistes in contemporary art
•  To initiate a process of assimilation of artistic atmosphere with the prevalent naturally green environs of Udaipur.
•  To start a process of integrating art with the prevalent education system
•  To bring budding artists on a common platform with renowned artists of the world to initiate a dialogue and make this platform available to generous patrons and art lovers as well.

The Palette

The hundreds of artworks that have touched so many hearts and will continue to do so were not born overnight. It’s the souls of 21 seasoned artistes that have been spilled on their canvasses. So who are they?
