World of emotions on display

The artists who hail from Hassan, Kodagu and Mysore respectively have put up a series of paintings which were exhibited at national level expos.

Jayadevanna T S whose paintings were based on theme ‘Channapatna dolls’ told Deccan Herald that as many as eight of his paintings are on display. “I have tried depicting various emotions using Channapatna dolls. With the mechanised lifestyle people are going away from antiquities and folk culture. The dolls will remind people of their folk roots,” he said.

Artist Nagesh U R whose paintings depict the integration of nature and man says that it is difficult to live away from nature.

“With my paintings I want to show the harmony between nature and man and also the consequences if the nature is destroyed,” he said. The artist who paints in bright brown, yellow and blue shades says that he has used brown in many places to depict desertification due to the destruction of nature.

Manjunatha H S is all set to bring old monuments back to life through his paintings. Regretting that with each passing day the monuments are being destroyed, he says the future generation many not even know that such elegant monuments once existed here.

The artist has also shown his love for sea with many sea paintings. “Sea is something which is deep and has various treasures hidden underneath. It similar to human emotions,” he said.

The art expo was inaugurated by renowned dentist Dr Mithra N Hegde who said that art is a gift which has not been bestowed upon all. Art should be encouraged in schools so that all at least learn the basics. Many schools do not have drawing classes, she said and added that art is an important platform for future professionals.

Mahalasa School of Art Principal K Purushotham Nayak said that a person’s experience is reflected in his art. Colours and its combinations come according to the theme. Art helps personality development and should be mandatorily included in education so that it nurtures the talents of young artists, he said.

The expo will be open for public at Prasad Art Gallery till December 17.
