The beauty of colours

The beauty of colours

 Selected works of 25 cadets from the school were displayed at the gallery, showcasing their talent. This was the first time that the school had taken an initiative like this. The exhibition was inaugurated by A K Pradhan, who appreciated the efforts of the students. 
 
The real surprise of the evening though, were the cadets, as young as 12 years, who showed great maturity when it came to art. Each of the 25 canvases was as varied from each other as were the students and showed their diverse thinking pattern.

Praveen D had painted Michael Jackson on the canvas. “He is expressing his feelings in the painting through dance and I chose to paint him because I am a dancer too,” he said. Another painting that caught a lot of attention was Hidden Beauty by 12-year-old Priyadarshan. “The painting depicts primitive type of turtles that have never been seen by humans and also show how beautiful they are,” he said describing his painting. While it was the first time on canvas for many of the cadets, their inexperience didn’t show when it came to their work. Each painting had a distinct quality to it and different techniques and strokes were used to bring upon the desired effect.

Some of the other interesting pieces which were seen in the exhibition were Orchestra of life by Ranjit, showing different aspects of a human life through different colours; Myth to metro by Wangyal dealt with a more spiritual issue of god being present in each human being and showed Lord Buddha in meditation.
The students beamed with pride, as they stood next to their painting, and one could see the amount of respect they had for their art teacher. The name of Dhrubajyoti Barai, who guided the students in this endeavour, was on every cadet’s lips. “It was a dream of our teacher to hold an exhibition like this and he helped us a lot while we made these paintings,” said Aushutosh, another student.

The ideas that were put in the strokes were quite astounding for the guests. “I didn’t expect this level of sophistication in the art while coming here,” said Adian, one of the many guests who had come to see the exhibition.
