A slice of village life

Kappari Kishan's work displayed at the gallery  

Short hair may be the rage of the present generation but artist Kappari Kishan's muse is a girl with a plaited long hair. At Inspire Art Gallery in Hyderguda, where the artist is having a show along with two other artists Guduri Prabhakar and Aditi Gemini (from Gujarat), it is play of bright colours and strokes. His paintings revolve around women and their different activities like painting, chit chat or even walking in the rain with an umbrella.

‘Chitrakarini' shows a traditional young woman with a super long hair which looks like a rope. A brush in her hand shows the artistic side and in the background is a picture of Buddha. “Every painting has a miniature theme too like Buddha, cow and Konark wheel,”' explains Kishan.

Guduri Prabhakar Rao's subjects are from the rural environment. Be it ‘Nirakshana' where a young girl longingly waits for her lover or ‘Affection' which shows a man, woman and a child, the works present a slice of village life. In a painting titled ‘Ugadi', a family gets ready to celebrate the Telugu New Year in a traditional way. The house is decked up with mango leaves, a little girl has a bunch of neem leaves and her mother carries a mango with her.

For Aditi Gemini, the artist from Gujarat, bells represent the force of spiritual. Bells in vibrant colours stand majestic in her works.

“Bells are not object of worship, but mirrors of our innermost beings,” says Aditi.

The group show at the gallery is on till October 29.
