Art inspired by life
Artist Manu Parekh’s work in Benaras will be showcased in a solo show. Parekh first went to Benaras in the throes of an artistic crisis and travelled the Ganga by boat. His experiences became fodder for his work. 'Faith' as the exhibit is called presents his body of work from the perspective of a painter engaging with vernacular religiosity and spirituality as well as from the perspective of Benaras as a place that has shaped the subjectivity of many modern artists of the 21st century.
