Galerie De'Arts is presenting an exhibition of drawings titled, ‘A Tribute to Ramanujan’ by S G Vasudev from July 14 to August 2, 11 am to 6 pm at Galerie De'Arts, 11th floor, Barton Centre, No 84, M G Road. The exhibition will be inaugurated on July 13 as it marks the anniversary of poet A K Ramanujan.

The exhibition will feature 25 drawings by S G Vasudev, depicting the poems of Ramanujan. Poetry is a powerful medium across generations and is a force to reckon with.

The exhibition showcases what happens when an equally powerful expression such as art integrates with poetry; then creativity knows no bounds.

Ramanujan has always had a great influence in the life of Vasudev. When the two of them met, Ramanujan expressed his desire that his poems be illustrated by Vasudev. Post the unforeseen passing away of the great poet, Vasudev continued his works based on Ramanujan’s poetry.

The works are on exhibit after 13 years since it was shown at the South Asian Studies Department, University of Chicago, in 2003.
