Rare drawings of KG Subramanyan done at Oxford, are on display

Rare drawings of KG Subramanyan on display

Since the Art corridor of Taj Falaknuma is curated by Kalakriti Art Gallery, this time the gallery has chosen works of the eminent artist. Kalakriti, in collaboration with The Seagull Foundation for the Arts, Kolkata, has brought these exquisite works that KG has done while he was at Oxford in 1987-88.

Around 86 works on display include his drawings and some works done in water colours and charcoal. “The Oxford drawings have not been seen by many art lovers; these works need a niche place hence we chose the art corridor,” shares Rekha Lahoti adding that Kalakriti often collaborates with Seagull. “We send our works and they send it to us. This huge collection by Seagull was collected long ago.”

The unique frames with their minimal designs make an indelible impression. Rekha elaborates, “It is brilliant to see how with a minimal use of paint, sketch pens and charcoal, he has been able to create something so beautiful. It is a treat to the eyes for art lovers and budding artists and students can get glimpses of the thought process of this renowned artist,” she adds.

One needs an appointment to visit this exhibition at Taj Falaknuma and art lovers can get in touch with Kalakriti Art Gallery at 66564466.
