Celebrating Janmashtami through art

Janmashtami, one of the most popular festivals of India is celebrated with great enthusiasm. To mark the occasion 10 artists have come together to portray Lord Krishna’s acts of compassion and ecstasy through a wide plethora of beautiful art pieces. 

The exhibition titled ‘Murlimanohar - The Flute Playing God’ is curated by Nisha Singh of Pearl Art Gallery.

The exhibition will display around 50 canvases created and infused with the spiritual power of the young and known artists. Hosted under in the Moments Mall, the exhibition is on display from August 8-12.

The festival is also a time for gifting your near and dear ones.
It is an appropriate way to convey your feelings to your friends and relatives, a time to show respect and care to your elders.

Beautiful Janmashtami gifts can vary from Lord Krishna idols and sculptures to gift hampers, from pooja accessories to dry fruits.

The holy Gita containing teachings of Lord Krishna is also a popular gift during the festival.

Hanish Arora, vice president, of the mall commented, “Janmashtami is a time for celebration. It is a perfect occasion to celebrate the glorious achievements of our favourite Lord Krishna. It’s the day when he ascended to the earth to brighten up life with love and harmony. Sri Krishna’s arrival is celebrated with utmost joy and zeal.”

One of the artists, Ashok Dixit displaying his art, says, “My creations are all oil paintings. I have portrayed a mother and a child in my paintings. Like Sri Krishna was a God, every child is a God.”

The gallery deals in original art works from various artists. The mediums in which these art works are done are varied. Some of the artists have used water colours, oils on canvas, acrylic, charcoals, pastels, bronze, mix media, fibre, wood and stone, etc.

Another artiste, Biplab Biswas has also portrayed love and care through his art work. “In today’s time when there is so much of hatred and betrayal, I have tried to portray love through my paintings. People don’t have patience nowadays and are killing their own brothers. So, my motive was to show love, peace and harmony through my creations.”

The gallery aims at establishing links with the art lover, collectors of art, artists and anyone who is interested in viewing creativity in this fast-paced life.
