Some exhibits

The exhibition will be open from 7.30am to 9.30pm. It will continue till December 16. The four youths are up and coming professional artists.

They have been seriously involved in the field of fine arts for the past two decades.

They have held a number of exhibitions as a group as well as individually. Vajira is the team leader of their present troupe. They are the expression of ideologies of the creative in the field of art production intervene the power polities which prevails in art.

According to what they say the way of thinking and the behaviour of artists is not the process of thinking about the material world.

The tradition that influences our lives is to deal with the lives of people.

The subject of painting is the medium of expression and the forms are numerous drawings, composition or abstractions and other aesthetic may serve to manifest the expressive and conceptual intention of the practitioner.

Paintings can be naturalistic and representational (as in a still life or landscape painting), photographic, abstract, be loaded with narrative content, symbolism, emotion or be political in nature.

Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, colour or other medium to a surface (support base). The application of the medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush but other objects may be used. In art the term describes both the act and the result which is called a painting.

Paintings may have for their support such surfaces as walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, clay, copper or concrete, and may incorporate multiple other materials including sand, clay, paper, gold leaf as well as objects.

Here they are trying to present something scriptural of humanity, colours, lines and their ideologies.

They have used oil colours for this task. Mixed paintings for paintings and fibre glass and acrylic for sculptures.

Art is like a poem. Through these painting and sculptures observers can appreciate and admire the deep meanings of their creations.
