This surely qualifies as a treat for the eyes. The Visual Art Gallery, India Habitat Centre, is hosting a group exhibition displaying around 50 artwork by seven contemporary artists. 

The exhibition titled ‘Visual Avalanche’ is representing every aspect of art from paintings to sculptures to photographs.
The event has given a fantastic opportunity to Delhiites to get an overview of the artists which include Saudamini Mishra, Amit Bhatia, Ankur Rana, Anushka, Mukesh and Radha Rana. 

These senior and emerging artists are from different backgrounds and specialise in different forms of art. Their medium and thought may vary but their artwork reflects their inner self.
Some of the creations are just outstanding, like Saudamini’s realistic paintings, Amit’s photographs reflecting people, culture and tradition, display of Ankur’s inner-self through his paintings, Anushka and Mukesh’s fusion of thoughts and creativity and Radha’s sculptures.
The artists are also different from each other in terms of their backgrounds and the kind of artwork they do.

Saudamini is a self-taught artist who draws her inspiration from Indian socio-cultural environment.

Whereas Amit’s keen interest in photography has turned him into an artist.
Similarly, Mukesh and Anushka are from different fields but they bring out their creativity collectively by working together.
Whereas, Radha is a multi-talented person, she teaches French and is also a sculptor. 
The exhibition presents various forms of art like realistic paintings based on socio-cultural environment of Indian society. 

And the viewer finds it easy to connect with the themes and people portrayed in them. It can be an image of a tea vendor or one displaying universal themes like time and money.

The paintings reflect the inner-self of the painter and its vibrant colours mirror the mood of the artist making it even more interesting. 

The exhibition is also an attempt to make people understand and appreciate that not just painting and sculptures but photography is also a specialised art. 
Last, but not the least, sculptors in the exhibition are influenced by Carnatic classical music. 

Though, the exhibits are influenced by classical music yet the artists’ approach to the artwork is modern.

The exhibition is on till April 11, from 10 am to 8 pm.
